A cure would be wonderful.

Parkinson's disease cannot be cured, but medications can help control the symptoms. For patients whose symptoms cannot be adequately controlled with medications, surgery may be an option. Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a neurosurgical procedure involving the implantation of pacemaker-like battery pack in your chest connected to electrodes terminating in a specific part of your brain. DBS can help lessen motor symptoms of stiffness, slowness and tremor.
