Support Our Work

Advancing medicine, delivering personalized care and providing hope

At Parkinson and Other Movement Disorders Center, we’re focused on translating innovative research into state-of-the-art, comprehensive, personalized patient care. We are proud to be recognized as leaders in both research and care, giving patients access to the most leading-edge technology and treatments available. Right now. When it matters.

Movement disorders, like Parkinson’s, are no small problem. These complex diseases affect 40 million people around the world and are challenging to diagnose and treat. At the Parkinson and Other Movement Disorder Center, we dare to pursue better answers and outcomes for our patients.

Our team of internationally recognized experts in neurology, neuropsychology, and neurosurgery is dedicated to revolutionizing the standard of care for these complex diseases. Every day we collaborate across disciplines and specialties to unite big ideas with leading-edge technology and drive innovative medicine. Each study brings us closer to radically transforming our ability to manage symptoms, make early diagnoses, and slow the progression of disease across the spectrum of movement disorders.
