Parkinson's Disease

Dr. Jochims is the most knowledgeable and experienced neurologist in the county for Parkinson’s. He remembers well going to visit his grandmother who suffered from Parkinson’s disease. She was nearly frozen in her nursing home chair with no facial expression. Many members of his family, including his mother’s father and brother, all suffered with Parkinson’s disease. Despite that, Parkinson’s is not genetic and family members are not at increased risk.

A Wealth of Special Training

During his neurology residency, Dr. Jochims was fortunate to work closely with the chief of neurology at the VA hospital and Froedtert hospitals in Milwaukee, treating patients with Parkinson’s disease. Today, he enjoys caring for patients because there are so many ways to treat their symptoms. Treatments have come a long way since he first saw his paralyzed grandmother in the 1970s. New medications and excellent surgical treatments are now available. Dr. Jochims has extensive knowledge of available procedures and facilitates proper referrals to academic centers for patients who are appropriate for such advanced procedures as deep brain stimulation (DBS).

Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimer’s disease is a degenerative brain disease. It's also the most common cause of dementia. Eventually neurons are damaged to the point where basic motor functions and memory become difficult, or maybe even impossible. The cause of this neurological damage is often attributed to an accumulation of plaque or protein-based fragments surrounding neurons. These protein deposits are also closely linked with Parkinson's disease. In fact, 50 - 80% of those with Parkinson's develop some type of dementia. Because of the nature of this disease, it's absolutely necessary to diagnose as early as possible.

People of all ages can fall victim to this disease. With proper identification and treatment the quality of a person's life can be significantly improved.
