Brain graft surgery: a new treatment for Parkinson's disease.

Abstract
Brain graft surgery remains controversial, and the beneficial effects, though promising, are mixed. For those patients who are eligible, it offers new hope for an alternative to early disability and family hardship. Outlined here are the etiology, pathophysiology, and manifestations of Parkinson's disease, plus the surgical procedure and postoperative nursing care.
