The mission of the Houston Area Parkinson Society is to improve the quality of life for those affected by Parkinson's disease through services, education and advocacy.

This program is designed for those with Parkinson's who have completed Deep Brain Stimulation surgery, are thinking about having DBS or just want to learn more about DBS as a treatment option. 

These sessions are presented by experts in the field of neurology and neurosurgery and provide information about the surgical procedure; how DBS works; who makes a good candidate; which Parkinson's symptoms benefit most and for how long; what to expect before and after surgery; and what defines DBS success. Participants will also have the opportunity to talk to others who have either completed or are considering DBS. Presented in partnership with Medtronic.

Please check back for more information about upcoming DBS programs in the area.
