About Parkinson’s Disease

What is it and what are my treatment options?

Parkinson’s Disease Overview

Parkinson’s disease is a movement-affecting nervous system disorder. Early treatment reduces symptoms as much as possible and slows down disease progression. A Carolina Orthopaedic and Neurosurgical Associates’ (CONA) neurovascular specialist should be contacted as soon as possible if symptoms present.

Symptoms & Risk Factors

Parkinson’s disease symptoms include:

  • Balance and posture problems
  • Loss of unconscious movements
  • Muscle stiffness
  • Speech problems
  • Tremors

Parkinson’s disease risk factors include:

  • Age
  • Family history
  • Gender (men)
  • Toxin exposure

Common Treatments:

Parkinson’s disease cannot be cured. Treatment revolves around reducing symptoms as much as possible. After a thorough evaluation, a CONA neurovascular specialist prescribes medication(s) and therapy.

I am happy with this practice all my questions are answered within 24 hours. Dr. Hoenig is great, his bedside manner is wonderful, he is very thorough, and makes personal calls after surgery to check on patients. I would definitely recommend to family and friends!

Dr. Hoenig

This has been one of my most positive experiences at a Dr's office. I was treated with respect and love. They made my surgical procedure less stressful and very positive.

These are the best group of doctors that myself & my family have ever been treated by in this field of medicine. They listen to how you feel instead of telling you how you feel. Thank you all for your caring & kindness.
