The Dopamine Chronicles

An almost daily cartoon about Parkinson's

Mad Science!

Gee, there are some complicated things they are doing with the Parkie meds nowadays. There’s mixtures of all sorts that they are trying on people with Deep Brain Stimulation being the last resort after all that stuff doesn’t work anymore. Can you cue Gene Wilder from “Young Frankenstein?”

  1. Actually, if this clinical trial I took part in back in 2007 bears fruit, DBS may be one of the FIRST options offered. It’s all in my book, “Put On Your Parky Face” which you can find on my website. The theory being, if it’s easier for the neurosurgeons to find the “sweet spot” in earlier PD, the more benefit DBS will provide… and the longer it will be provided.

  2. gonna have to get the book! will keep you updated what the Houston VA says…
