Advanced Movement Disorder Therapies

Being diagnosed with a movement disorder can be full of unknowns. Our team has specialized training in the diagnosis and treatment for a range of movement disorders, including Parkinson’s disease, essential tremor and dystonia. Our team offers a range of procedural options, including Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) and Focused Ultrasound (FUS). No two movement disorders are the same, so we create a personalized care plan to meet your individual needs.
