Conditions We Treat

Movement disorders are neurological conditions that affect your ability to control body movement. Our experts focus on finding the cause of your symptoms, providing treatments to manage them and helping you reach your daily lifestyle goals. Conditions we treat include:

  • Dystonia, a disorder that causes muscle contractions and involuntary movements
  • Essential tremor, a neurological condition causing rhythmic shaking and trembling that’s more noticeable when you move
  • Parkinson’s disease, a progressive disease resulting from a chemical imbalance in the brain that causes movement problems such as tremors, body stiffness and slow movement
  • Tourette syndrome, a tic disorder in which you make involuntary repetitive movements and sounds or words

Services We Offer

  • Deep brain stimulation (DBS), where implanted electrodes stimulate specific areas of the brain with small regular electrical impulses. DBS can reduce severity of involuntary movement,  tremors, stiffness or slow movement in patients who have Parkinson’s disease and dystonia.
  • Imaging studies (including MRI) to examine the brain and detect brain tumors, traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis, dementia, infections or other conditions.
  • Image-guided mapping, which uses software, MRI and CT scans to precisely target an area of the brain for DBS.

What to Expect

Assessment and Diagnosis

When you arrive at our office, you will be greeted by our friendly staff who are fully committed to caring for you. During your visits, our doctors take time to get to know you and your needs. You’ll begin by meeting with a surgeon, who will review your medical history and neurology test results.

Treatment

We’ll help you understand your treatment plan and choose the best options available to you. Movement disorder surgery may reduce involuntary movements and other symptoms when medications have been unable to help. If you need surgery, our inpatient team will be by your side before, during and after your procedure. We’ll guide your recovery so you can get back to doing the things you love.
