Advanced Treatment Options

Movement disorders can be relentlessly progressive and disabling conditions. Whereas most movement disorders were considered untreatable a mere 50 years ago, steady progress continues to redefine the possibilities in treatment of these conditions.

Recent advances in our understanding of the mechanisms of these disorders have lead to tremendous progress in treatment, both medical and surgical. Our ever expanding team and facilities are committed to advancing this progress and achieving our mission of improving the lives of patients suffering from these disorders.
