  • Overview

    More men than women are diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease by almost a 2 to 1 margin.  However, women receive supportive surgery less often than men, and their symptoms are more severe on average by the time surgical options are taken.

    Host Brian McDonough chats with Dr. Allison Willis, Assistant Professor of Neurology at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, about gender differences in diagnosing and managing Parkinson's Disease.
