Personalized attention from experts who care
With conditions such as Parkinson’s disease (PD), tremor, dystonia, and tics, collaboration with a movement disorders specialist is key. Our experts understand your symptoms and can offer a comprehensive approach to optimize your functioning. We see the bigger picture and emphasize a partnership with you and your family.
Support for the Whole Patient and Their Families
Properly managing movement disorders must include both education and support. With informational programs, support groups, psychological care, and caregiver guidance, we’re with you at every step. Our partnership with American Parkinson Disease Association (APDA) provides structured support groups for newly diagnosed PD patients and their families.
The Latest Treatment Options for Movement Disorders
There’s always time for second opinions when considering the treatment best for you. Our customized frameless deep brain stimulation (DBS) technique allows for shorter surgery time and greater patient comfort. We also offer novel non-invasive stimulation for tremor and highly effective Botox injections for dystonia, as well as clinical trial opportunities.

What Is Cervical Dystonia?
Cervical dystonia is a localized, or focal, form of a neurological condition called dystonia. It is a very common movement disorder that affects mostly the muscles of the head and neck.
Cervical Dystonia: A Pain in the Neck
Many of our patients tell us that prior to being seen by us, their symptoms were dismissed by physicians or other providers. Because many movement disorders show no abnormalities on blood testing or imaging, patients are often told that there is “nothing wrong” and that they should learn to “live with it.”
