In brief: Research
There are medications and procedures (e.
g. Dbs surgery) that can help alleviate the symptoms of parkinson's disease, but there is no cure currently. Since pd (at least initially) involves only a small very localized group of cells, pd is one of the more promising targets for stem cell transplant research. More info available at michaeljfox.Org, npf.Org, apdaparkinson.Org.

In brief: No. BUT
Deep brain microsurgery has already produced some remarkable result in select individuals.
But my daughter arielle--2nd year neurology resident at nyu--will help find that cure.

In brief: Parkinson Cure????
Currently there is only treatment for Parkinson Disease and no cure.
However, every year researchers are finding small pieces to the puzzle. Decrease in research funding is currently slowing down our pursuit for a cure.

In brief: No
There is no cure of parkinson's disease.
However, there are excellent medications that can effectively control many of the symptoms. If medications fail and patients develop motor fluctuations, deep brain stimulation (dbs) is an excellent job of treating symptoms. None of these treatments however change the disease - they only treat the symptoms.
