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 in the form of 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 2020 annual symposium was held on Thursday, August 20th, 2020 due to COVID-19.
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.
