Approximately 60,000 Americans are diagnosed with PD each year. More than 10 million people worldwide are living with PD.
The combined direct and indirect cost of Parkinson’s, including treatment, social security payments and lost income, is estimated to be nearly $25 billion per year in the United States alone.
Medications alone cost an average of $2,500 a year and therapeutic surgery can cost up to $100,000 per person. (https://parkinson.org/Understanding-Parkinsons/Statistics)
