Cressman Parkinson’s Center at Norton Healthcare

Providing Comfort and Relief

Because of an increasing elderly population in Greater Louisville, Parkinson’s disease is a significant health concern. As the region’s leader in providing care for neurological conditions, Norton Neuroscience Institute is dedicated to offering the most advanced treatments for people with Parkinson’s disease. Thanks to a generous gift from Elizabeth Pahk Cressman, M.D., Ph.D., Norton Healthcare and Norton Neuroscience Institute have established the Cressman Parkinson’s Center. This specialized center allows Norton Neuroscience Institute to enhance care and research efforts for Parkinson’s patients, including recruiting specialists, developing new technology and enhancing available treatments.

In addition, the Cressman Parkinson’s Center offers deep brain stimulation, currently the preferred surgical method to help control movement difficulties.
