The Movement Disorders Clinic at Vanderbilt University Medical Center provides advanced care to individuals experiencing involuntary and excess movement, impaired balance and coordination, muscle rigidity, slow movement or other symptoms. We also specialize in treating Parkinson’s disease, dystonia, tremors and spasticity resulting from stroke, multiple sclerosis and head injuries.
Our doctors have specialized training in diagnosing and treating the full range of movement disorders. As leading experts, our doctors also serve in the organizations responsible for establishing national guidelines for patient care and participate in clinical trials to test potential new therapies.
Vanderbilt is a Parkinson's Foundation Center of Excellence. We are also recognized as a national leader in using deep brain stimulation (DBS) to treat Parkinson’s disease, dystonia and essential tremor.
