Can Parkinson's be treated?
Successful treatment is possible by replacing the missing dopamine substance with medical therapy in the early stages of Parkinson's disease.
In advanced stages, and/or in cases where medical treatment is insufficient, it is possible to restore the patients to their initial stages by performing Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS).
However, even if the patients appear to be living everyday life, it does not seem possible to cure the disease completely. It happens since the missing substance in the brain cannot be replaced, similar to the insulin deficiency in diabetes.
Parkinson's is known as the "tremor disease." Are there Parkinson's patients who do not have tremors? Could DBS be helpful in those patients?
Although it was defined as "shaking palsy," a significant part of Parkinson's patients may not notice tremors. Or tremor may disappear due to progressive stiffness and rigidity in the advanced stages of the disease. Contrary to the public thought that DBS is only beneficial for the tremor, this surgery also provides an even better clinical improvement for slowness and stiffness than its effect on tremor.
Can you live an everyday life with Parkinson's?
If patients respond adequately to medical treatment in the first years of the disease, they can live a relatively normal life. In cases where medical treatment is insufficient, patients can live a near-normal life after DBS surgery.
