Parkinson's disease is a degenerative disorder with no known cure. Neurologists are able to use their resources to slow down/fight the progression of the disease down but still can not resolve the disease.
They also have better methods for achieving faster, more accurate diagnoses. More information about surgical treatments, including alternative therapies is available. The progression of Parkinson's varies in every patient. The process may be slower in one patient from the next. There is no real rhyme or reason for this.
