Fox may best be known for his acting, many know him as one of the leading figures in taking away the stigma against Parkinson’s disease. Fox, along with former U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno, boxer Muhammad Ali and singer <a href="http://www.npr.org/2013/09/17/223172521/in-memoir-linda-ronstadt-describes-her-simple-dreams">Linda Ronstadt</a> have all been open and frank about their diagnosis of the disease. But as more and more of the public are aware of the disease though, there is still much that is unknown about Parkinson’s disease.</p><p>This week on <em>Take Care</em>, <a href="http://www.med.umich.edu/neurology/faculty/chou_research_bio.htm">Dr. Kelvin Chou</a> discusses the uncertainties involved with Parkinson’s disease, as well as cutting edge ways to treat it. Dr. Chou is associate professor of neurology and neurosurgery at the University of Michigan Medical School, and is one of the country’s leading authorities on Parkinson’s disease. He has recently published a book for patients and families called <em><a href="http://www.amazon.com/Deep-Brain-Stimulation-Kelvin-Chou/dp/1936303116">Deep Brain Stimulation: A New Life for People with Parkinson’s, Dystonia and Essential Tremor</a>.</em></p><p><strong>Click 'Read More' to hear our interview with Dr. Chou.</strong></p><p><em> Mon, 11 Nov 2013 00:01:00 +0000 Take Care Staff 46891 at http://wrvo.org Much is still unknown about Parkinson's disease Parkinson's disease: diagnosis and treatment http://wrvo.org/post/parkinsons-disease-diagnosis-and-treatment <p></p> Fri, 08 Nov 2013 12:50:31 +0000 WRVO News 46804 at http://wrvo.org Parkinson's disease: diagnosis and treatment
