Parkinson's Disease

Parkinson's Disease
Your support helps patients and families.

Parkinson’s Disease is a movement disorder that causes complications that increase over time, such as tremors, rigid muscles and problems with balance and speaking. Specialists of the brain and spinal cord, including neurologists at Banner Health, diagnose and treat patients with Parkinson’s disease. Banner Health also offers extensive rehabilitation programs and support groups to help patients and their families.

The Banner Sun Health Research Institute in Sun City, Arizona is recognized for its excellent reputation in age-related disorders. It is actively engaged in leading Parkinson’s research and clinical trials, while Banner Boswell Medical Center offers deep-brain stimulation for Parkinson’s patients who no longer benefit from medication. Your gifts to these medical facilities support patient care programs, family support services, and studies of investigational medications in the field of Alzheimer's and Parkinson’s disease.
