Advanced Parkinson’s Disease requires particular attention as it is more difficult to live with the symptoms. At Dementech, we provide professional medical support and strive to provide an exceptional standard of care. Receive the support that you need to cope with your symptoms from our experts.
What is Advanced Parkinson’s Disease?
Advanced Parkinson’s Disease (APD) is quite simply the later stage of the disease. APD is characterised by limited mobility and several other symptoms. People with Parkinson’s Disease (PD) will usually develop APD after around 10 years, but this can vary depending on the individual.
At Dementech Neurosciences, we are at the forefront of our understanding of PD and we use cutting-edge technology – CANTAB – to assess the severity of cognitive deficits in patients with Parkinson’s Disease and APD. This helps us to provide an early diagnosis of cognitive impairment and outline the best treatment options to manage the condition.
Dementech is a private clinic based in London, specialising in the treatment of Parkinson’s. If you or a family member needs specialist treatment for Advanced Parkinson’s Disease, please contact us and we will be happy to provide any support you need.
Advanced Parkinson’s Disease Diagnosis & Treatment At Dementech
Advanced PD & Clinical Uncertain Parkinson’s patients can pose a diagnostic challenge, but our experts have years of experience across all facets of this complex disease. At Dementech, we’re confident in being among the best-placed specialists to help you achieve an accurate diagnosis and receive appropriate support throughout your treatment.
As PD advances to become APD, naturally, the symptoms will become more complex, although they will still vary depending on the individual. For example, patients may develop levodopa-induced postsynaptic dysregulation of striatal dopamine receptors. This would therefore require a slightly different and more complex approach to treatment, which we can facilitate.
Continuous dopaminergic stimulation is a novel therapeutic strategy for the management of Parkinson’s disease, which proposes dopaminergic agents that provide continuous stimulation of striatal dopamine receptors that will delay or prevent the onset of levodopa-related motor complications. However, pulsatile stimulation of dopamine receptors can also occur at this stage of APD. This pulsatile stimulation then leads to molecular and physiologic changes in basal ganglia neurons and the development of motor complications. These effects are reduced or avoided when dopaminergic therapies are delivered in a more continuous and physiological manner.
Most innovative, neoteric treatment strategies that provide continuous dopaminergic stimulation can be achieved with triple ‘P’ treatment in the form of a transdermal patch, pump, and continuous infusion therapies to help combat this debilitating and denervating illness.
At Dementech Neurosciences, we are delighted to be able to offer these advanced and novel treatment strategies to patients with Advanced Parkinson’s, under the supervision of our esteemed neurologist Professor Ray Chaudhuri. We follow stringent NICE guidelines and offer bespoke service and one-stop treatment.
Technology Used For Advanced Parkinson’s Disease
Dementech is committed to using the latest and most advanced testing methods for APD. To that end, we collaborate with famous universities and medical organisations for the development of new testing methods and experimental treatments. We use a combination of testing methods to establish an accurate diagnosis for Parkinson’s Disease and Advanced Parkinson’s Disease.
One of the most effective surgeries used for APD is Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) surgery, whereby electrodes are inserted into the brain using Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) to record brain activity during the procedure. This process has been proven to help patients manage their tremors, but it does pose some risks. Our specialists will be sure to keep every patient and their families aware of any potential risks or side effects before going ahead with any form of treatment.

“My family and I experienced one of the hardest times of our lives having to deal with my wife’s deteriorating condition. I would like to personally thank the lovely young lady Zobiaa from Dementech, for showering us with compassion, empathy and genuine care and concern. Her professionalism, high-level customer service and communication, eye for detail, and willingness to go the extra mile to accommodate our needs and make not only my wife, but our whole family, feel as comfortable and supported as possible, is something we will always be grateful for. Thank you so much for your friendly and polite presence Zobiaa and taking the time and effort to build a relationship with us. You really made our visits to the clinic a positive, 5 star experience.”
“Dementech Neurosciences is a relatively new clinic specialising in the scientific assessment and treatment of Parkinson’s Disease. It represents a significant development in the treatment of Parkinson’s and has done a great job of establishing itself and its reputation in a short period of time. The premises are extremely well situated in central London, the consultant neurologists are all at the top of their field in their specialisation of the treatment of Parkinson’s Disease, and the clinical and administrative staff are of a similar standard. The atmosphere of the clinic is positive and the results, in the short period of time I have been able to assess, have been similarly positive.”
“Have had nothing but kindness and professionalism from Dementech and all their staff. From their initial guidance by Shakeela, through to staff conducting the MRI tests and Dr. Lucio D’Anna for his expertise clarity of explanation, compassion and consideration. Special mention to Zobia, who saved the day with her quick thinking that helped my mother-in-law to obtain extended care. Overall a perfect experience. Cannot recommend them enough.”
