Parkinson’s disease is unique to each person diagnosed, as symptoms ranging from motor and non-motor will vary per case. Given this range in symptoms, the treatment options – whether medical or surgical – will likely vary. In this webinar, Dr. Fernando Pagan will review advances in Parkinson’s disease treatments for both motor and non-motor symptoms and will share how research is targeting the underlying pathology.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Describe the pathology behind Parkinson’s;
  • Describe Parkinson’s as a motor and non-motor disease;
  • List classes of medical and surgical treatments for motor and non-motor symptoms; and
  • Describe how research is trying to target the underlying pathology
