After several years of good symptom management, controlling Parkinson’s disease may become more challenging. In this program, participants will learn how Parkinson’s symptoms may change over time and explore surgical options to help manage symptoms. Participants will also learn about the work-up process for consideration of Deep Brain Stimulator Surgery (DBS), now available at the Minneapolis VA for Veterans within VISN 23; North and South Dakota, Iowa, Nebraska, Western WI and Minnesota.

This program is open to people with Parkinson's, their family, friends, and the community. There is no charge to attend, but registration is required.
