The department of neurosurgery seeks men and women ages 30 and older with dyskinesia symptoms of Parkinson’s disease for a research study. The purpose of the study is to show whether or not focused ultrasound can be used to treat dyskinesia (abnormal movement) symptoms.
This study involves a screening visit followed by a focused ultrasound procedure and post-procedure visits at 1 Day, 1 week, 1 month, 3 month, 6 month, and 12 month. All participants will be randomized into either a placebo or treatment group and will not be told their group until the 3 month visit. Following the 3 month visit, participants in the placebo group will be given the option to have the actual procedure performed.
All study related procedures will be paid for by the clinical trial.
