Our Approach to Treating

Parkinson’s Disease

Specialists at NYU Langone’s Fresco Institute for Parkinson’s and Movement Disorders offer expert diagnosis and specialized treatment for people with Parkinson’s disease. This neurological disorder progressively affects a person’s movement, speech, mood, and thinking.  

At NYU Langone, a team of neurologists, neurosurgeons, nurses, social workers, occupational and physical therapists, and rehabilitation experts collaborate to manage the condition. Because each person with Parkinson’s disease faces different challenges, our team emphasizes the importance of an individualized care plan to maintain quality of life.

Treatment for Parkinson’s Disease

Although there is not yet a cure for Parkinson’s disease, NYU Langone doctors can help people to manage their symptoms with medication, rehabilitation, and educational programs. Our experts focus on treatments that improve the quality of life for people with this condition.
