Parkinson's Disease

Parkinson's disease is a disorder of the brain characterized by shaking (tremor) and difficulty with walking, movement, and coordination. The disease is associated with damage to a part of the brain that is involved with movement. The experts at UH can help Parkinson’s patients improve their quality of life through medication and/or a surgical procedure called deep brain stimulation.
