 Parkinson's Disease Clinic Launched at PSRI Hospital

World Parkinson's Disease Day was observed on 11th April, to commemorate the day The Pushpawati Singhania Hospital & Research Institute (PSRI) in New Delhi launched its Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorder Clinic to help treat patients affected by the condition.

Parkinson's is a progressive disorder which strikes through the central nervous system and affects the body movement.


"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.

Researchers say that Parkinson disease is considered one of the most common human adult-onset neurodegenerative diseases and is the second most common disorder after Alzheimer disease.

It commonly occurs between the ages of 50 and 80 and also affects children and adolescents at the same time.

World Parkinson's Day is celebrated to create awareness about the disease.

It also marks the birthday of James Parkinson, a London physician who first described the disease.
