The University of Minnesota Udall Center is driven to provide not only quality patient care, but to providing resources for the entire Parkinson’s community.
The University of Minnesota provides world-class treatment for Parkinson’s disease. Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) acts similarly to a pacemaker for the heart, providing electrical currents to certain parts of the brain to improve tremor and other symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.
Starting in 2017, the UMN Udall Center has hosted an annual patient symposium for Parkinson’s patients and their caregivers. The annual symposium provide updates on research and new technologies available for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease. The 2022 annual symposium will be held on April 29, 2022 with both in-person and options available.
There are dozens of support groups for patients with Parkinson’s in the Twin Cities Metro area as well as across Minnesota. These groups provide excellent resources and guidance to both newly diagnosed patients and those further along in their Parkinson’s journey.
National resources help you find the latest news on Parkinson's research, connect with others living with Parkinson's Disease and contain mutliple opportunities for education and awareness.
