Community Healthcare System's Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders program takes a multidisciplinary approach to treating patients throughout Northwest Indiana by combining the expertise of our fellowship-trained neurology and neurosurgery specialists with the support of our nurses, therapists and social service professionals to help you regain your quality of life.

When movement disorders such as Parkinson’s disease, essential tremor disease, and dystonia begin to interfere with a patient’s daily activities despite medical management, our program offers the latest deep brain stimulation (DBS) techniques to help remediate the effects. DBS is a surgical procedure in which a web of electrodes is carefully attached to parts of the brain to send electric impulses that stimulate nerves and redirect a patient’s brain activity. 

For most patients, DBS surgery results in improved motor skills, reduced tremors and decreased need for medication. Headed by Andrea J. DeLeo, DO, MSE, and Wayel Kaakaji, MD, our program is designed to restore your health so that you can return to your everyday lifestyle.
