Movement Disorders

Evaluation and treatment for a full range of movement disorders is offered, among them  Parkinson's disease and related diseases (including progressive supranuclear palsy and multiple system atrophy), essential tremor, other tremor disorders, dystonia, restless legs syndrome, Tourette's, Huntington disease, hyperkinetic movement disorders, Wilson's disease and spinocerebellar ataxias. Management of Parkinson's disease includes access to clinical trials as well as the latest approved medications and neurosurgical approaches. For movement disorders, we offer and multidisciplinary evaluations including physical therapy, speech and swallowing therapy, psychiatry, and occupational therapy. Botulinum toxin (Botox, Xeomin, Dysport, and Myobloc) therapy for cervical dystonia and other movement disorders are performed with electromyographic (EMG) guidance. Evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of unusual movement disorders including calcifications of the brain, stiff person syndrome, and painful legs/moving toes is supplemented by access to research in these areas.  Peter LeWitt M.D. is the department's specialist in this field.
