Movement and functional disorders cover a wide range of conditions so the diagnosis methods and treatment options will vary depending on your symptoms and the condition. Please see the individual condition for more information on the diagnosis procedure and treatment.

In general, we use the latest techniques including oral medications and injectable treatments such as botulinum toxin (Botox®). Some of the surgical techniques we use include deep brain stimulation and intrathecal administration of baclofen  (as well as other compounds as they become available). Our team — neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuropsychologists, physical therapists, speech therapists and others — use the latest in technology for treatment and evaluation, but we also incorporate the proven method of simply listening to you and your family and making a careful evaluation of your condition.
