Atypical Parkinson’s disease symptoms
Motor and vocal tics
Tardive dyskinesia and more
Get back to enjoying life on your terms
We understand that movement disorders can affect every part of your life — physically, mentally and emotionally. We offer a range of surgical and nonsurgical treatments and therapies that can help.
Advanced medicine therapy
Botulinum toxin injections
Deep brain stimulation (DBS): A treatment option for movement disorders including, but not limited to, Parkinson’s disease and essential tremor, and neurological conditions such as epilepsy. DBS is a neurosurgical procedure that uses implanted electrodes and electrical stimulation. The electrodes keep your symptoms under control, decrease the amount of medicine needed for treatment, and greatly improve your quality of life.
Physical, occupational, behavioral and speech therapy: Your neurosurgeon and rehabilitation specialists work together to create a tailored rehabilitation plan prior to any surgical procedure. In most cases, your rehab plan begins prior to your treatment and continues after your surgery.
