Do you have Parkinson's disease and are you considering DBS?

Detailed Study Description

Doctors at the University of Kentucky are investigating a cell therapy to modify the progression of motor and/or cognitive impairment in people with Parkinson's disease. Patients who are already planning to undergo deep brain stimulation (DBS) surgery may be eligible for this investigational procedure, which involves taking a small piece of nerve tissue from behind the ankle and implanting it in the brain during the DBS.
