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.

What is the level of medicine in Turkey?
Healthcare is the key development sector of the Turkish government. The Turkish authorities are convinced that care for the citizens' health should be an absolute priority of state policy and spend about 77 billion liras for healthcare annually.
As a result, 28,000 medical facilities provide excellent medical care in the country. About 50 centers have certificate of JCI (Joint Commission International), the international improver of healthcare quality and safety across the globe. The index of certificates obtained is the largest. To compare, Israel has 20 JCI-accredited facilities, and Germany — only 10 clinics of this type.
Why is Turkey trendy for medical tourism?
Turkey is also a well-known country globally due to high-skilled doctors that undergo internships in American and European institutions. Patients from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, the UAE, Jordan, and Lebanon prefer treatment in Turkey to other places.
Highly developed medical centers and first-rate therapeutic services at affordable prices attract people from all over the world. Over 1 mln international patients travel to Turkey annually. So Turkey is among Top 10 countries with the most developed medical tourism sector.
Turkey is a top destination for medical tourists because of low-costs. You may save up to 50% on services compared to European countries or the USA due to the average local citizens' income and general price policy within the country.
