"Parkinson's disease is no more an incurable and debilitating disease. Modern medicines and Deep Brain Stimulation have revolutionised the management of Parkinson's disease and many other disorders like tremors, epilepsy and OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder)," said Shamsher Dwivedee, Chairman, PSRI Hospital, in New Delhi.
