The Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders Center

The Johns Hopkins Movement Disorders Center provides comprehensive, compassionate and timely treatment to our patients. Our excellence in treating, researching and teaching about movement disorders, including ataxia, dystonia, essential tremor and Parkinson's disease, allows us to provide the best care for all our patients.

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 led 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.

Center of Excellence

Since 2006, Johns Hopkins' Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders Center has been named a Center of Excellence by the Parkinson Foundation. 

The peer-review committee of the PF chooses Centers of Excellence based on an individual center’s demonstrated excellence, their resources and their dedication to Parkinson research, clinical care and outreach initiatives. The committee renews COEs on a competitive basis every three years.
