WASHINGTON, May 13, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Common yet complex, Parkinson's disease, essential tremor, dystonia and other movement disorders often start gradually and are sometimes misdiagnosed.

Even when diagnosed early and correctly, symptoms can become difficult to manage and make daily activities difficult or impossible.  

An estimated 60-thousand Americans are diagnosed with Parkinson's disease each year. Ten million people are living with PD worldwide; one million are in the United States.

During a live webcast on Wednesday, May 14 from 7-7:30 pm, MedStar Georgetown University Hospital Director of Functional, Epilepsy and Pediatric Neurosurgery, Christopher Kalhorn, MD, and the Director of Movement Disorders Center, Fernando Pagan, MD, will be available to answer your questions about movement disorders, and their medical management, treatment, evaluation and surgical options, including deep brain stimulation, (DBS).
