Lecture Description:
What are the most common myths surrounding Parkinson’s disease, and from where do patients learn these misconceptions? For example, when discussing treatment options, most patients share the same misconceptions about the disease and levodopa, the most effective medication for reducing the motor symptoms of Parkinson’s. Dr. Stanley Fahn will discuss a host of myths and misconceptions that people with Parkinson’s and their families have brought to his attention over the years. He will also talk about treatments that some physicians may have initiated without full understanding that the strategies for treating Parkinson’s have advanced over the years, and considerable progress has been made. These questions, and their answers, are explored from the perspective of a movement disorders founder and leader in the field.
