Time & Location
About the Event
Join the Parkinson’s and Movement Disorders Center for conversations and audience Q&A with specialists whose research and clinical expertise focus on Deep Brain Stimulation in Parkinson’s Disease. The session will be moderated by exercise and wellness advocates from Power Over Parkinson’s and faculty at the VCU Parkinson’s & Movement Disorders Center. Deep brain stimulation surgery is a safe and highly effective treatment for the motor features of Parkinson’s disease; nevertheless, quite a bit of controversy exists about the ideal time during the course of Parkinson’s disease to initiate deep brain stimulation surgery.
