Parkinson's Disease – It's More Than Just a Tremor

Guest: Jeremy K. Cutsforth-Gregory, M.D. (@JCGneuro)

Host: Darryl S. Chutka, M.D. (@ChutkaMD)

Parkinson’s Disease is one of the more common neurodegenerative diseases, in fact, patients with Parkinson’s outnumber those with multiple sclerosis, ALS, and muscular dystrophy combined. It tends to affect older patients, although on rare occasions it can be seen in those under the age of 50. It can have a devastating effect on an individual’s lifestyle as the physical symptoms of the disease tend to gradually progress over years. This podcast will feature Dr. Jeremy Cutsforth-Gregory, a neurologist at the Mayo Clinic, as we discuss the evaluation and management of Parkinson’s Disease.

Specific topics:

  • Pathophysiology of Parkinson’s Disease
  • Common presenting symptoms of Parkinson’s
  • Assessing patients with tremor
  • Complications of advanced Parkinson’s
  • Pharmacologic management of Parkinson’s
