PARKINSON'S DISEASE SYMPOSIUM

Parkinson's disease is a progressive neuro-degenerative disorder that affects up to 1 million Americans. It is the second most common neuro-degenerative disorder after Alzheimer's disease. Currently effective symptomatic treatment options exist but are not deployed consistently leading to variability in care for this patient population. SFNS will hold its second biennial Parkinson's disease Symposium on September 17, 2016. Our last PD symposium was highly successful, attracting clinicians of all fields who participate in the care of patients with Parkinson's disease. Topics presented will include Neuroimaging in PD, Neuromuscular issues in PD, PD psychosis, Palliation in PD, Exercise and Surgical Limitations of DBS. We will end the program with panel discussion involving our faculty reviewing case presentations. Learn more!
