Summary
Commonly thought of as an elderly person's affliction, Parkinson's disease in reality often begins before a patient reaches an advanced age. This film presents case studies drawn from a broader age range than is normally associated with the disorder. To start with, a 40-year-old woman explains the difficulties she experienced for about 10 years until doctors finally diagnosed her with Parkinson's. Viewers also meet a man well into his senior years who copes with the disease, aided by a physiotherapist and a daily exercise program. The causal factors, symptoms, and treatment of Parkinson's Disease are explored, with intriguing medical developments highlighted by University of Athens professor and neurosurgeon Damianos Sakas, who explains the innovative procedure known as Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS). In conjunction with Dr. Sakas's commentary, the program shows an actual DBS operation in which the patient is awake and responsive during surgery.
