Parkinson’s Disease

Home >> Neurosciences Neurosurgery >> Parkinson’s Disease

Clinical Directorate

Overview

It is a disorder of the brain that leads to shaking (tremors) and difficulty with walking, movement, and coordination. Symptoms may be mild at first. For instance, you may have a mild tremor or a slight feeling that one leg or foot is stiff and dragging.

Symptoms may affect one or both sides of the body, and can include:

  • Slow blinking (tremors involving half of the body)
  • Constipation
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Drooling
  • Problems with balance and walking
  • No expression in the face (like you are wearing a mask)

Causes

This disease most often occurs after age 50 and is one of the most common nervous system disorders of the elderly. Parkinson's disease occurs when the nerve cells in the brain that make dopamine are slowly destroyed. In the absence of dopamine, the nerve cells cannot function properly which leads to the loss of muscle function. The damage gets worse with time. Exactly why these brain cells waste away is unknown.

Treatment

At Max Institute of Neurosciences, the goal of treatment is to control symptoms & make the patients able to carry out the daily living independently with us of various medicates & delaying progression.

  • Our doctors and therapists work closely with the patient to find a treatment program that works best
  • Inj Botulinum toxin by experienced neurologists
  • Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) is a surgical technique which helps ease symptoms of Parkinson’s in some cases. It involves placing electrical stimulators in specific areas of the brain that control movement.
