Movement Disorders Clinic
Patients can be either self-referred or physician-referred, but we prefer greatly to work as a team with your primary care and other physicians to make sure you're getting the benefits of cooperation and synergy from all healthcare providers.
We use the latest treatments including medications, botulinum toxin (Botox), deep brain stimulation and intrathecal administration of baclofen and physical therapy. Our clinical trial program for investigation treatment is also very active. We employ the latest in technology for treatment and evaluation, yet try to incorporate the tried-and-true method of diligently listening to our patients and their families, and examining them carefully. Our team approach involves neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuropsychologists, physical therapists, speech therapists and others as appropriate.
