Parkinson’s disease can be a challenging diagnosis for clinicians due to the multiple ways it manifests in patients. During this webinar, our speakers will review how Parkinson’s affects motor systems as well as autonomic and cognitive circuits, including associated types of dementia.

Attendees will gain an understanding of how Parkinson’s impacts an individual and at what point surgical treatment should be considered.

Learning objectives include:

  • To be aware of the wide variety of symptoms associated with Parkinson’s when considering a diagnosis
  • To understand cognitive features and associated dementias
  • To understand what surgical treatment options are available and when to use them


This webinar is available for on-demand viewing. The webinar recording will be available for registered event participants up to 60 days after the live webinar broadcast via Zoom. The link will be sent 24 hours after the webinar takes place.
