Community Involvement
Community Involvement
In order to support the movement disorder patients, particularly Parkinson’s patients, we are planning to
found "DBS Patients Association", and carry out community involvement activities under the banner of this association.


In parallel with the activities of this association,
  • We want to inform the patients and their families about the fact that DBS treatment is available and applicable; that it benefits patients who did not respond to the medical treatment or not sufficiently did due to severe side effects, and who has Generalized Dystonia and some other movement disorders, particularly Parkinson’s; and that the patients who had DBS operation with the right technique and surgical method can benefit both after the surgery and in the long run;
  • Op.Dr. Ali Zırh
  • to support the movement disorder patients with physical therapy, walking, balance, and speaking exercises for their walking, balance, speaking, and sleep problems which could not be recovered with medical treatment;
  • to inform the society, the families and relatives of the patients about movement disorder diseases, and raise awareness of the society about them; and
  • to point out that a movement disorder is a disease that could be fought against, to raise awareness that with the right timing and right treatment one can live with such disorder, and that people who has such disorders are not alone in the society, and to support the foundations and people who work on this specific disorder.




In order to realize these wishes and projects;
  • we plan to gather families of Parkinson’s patient and other movement disorder patients in a meeting in Istanbul on a specific day each month to provide them with free trainings on disorders, nutrition, physiotherapy and exercise by specialist physicians.
  • Ali Zırh
  • We intend to visit a city together with the experts who could present free training sessions and then examine and inform the patients.
  • We plan to award the patient and their family who has the "best life story" or "Parkinson’s Success Story" of the month with a gift.
  • In order to increase the connection and solidarity between the patients and their families, and to underline the importance of communication in fighting against the disease, together with the movement disorder patients, we plan to
  • go on trips,
  • organize meetings and entertainment gatherings, and
  • give concerts where the patients undergone the treatment would perform themselves.
  • Ali Zırh
  • We aim to support the movement disorder patients with physical therapy, walking, balance, and speaking exercises for their walking, balance, speaking, and sleep problems which could not be recovered with medical treatment; to ensure that they get the necessary scientific treatment exercises; to provide a space and a team for this treatment; and that these treatments are provided free for the patients in need.
  • We plan to provide a meeting point for the patients where they can have activities together, and perform art activities such as model building, calligraphy, and marbling which all could increase and maintain their manual dexterity.
