Movement Disorders

We are a multidisciplinary specialty group dedicated to providing individualized, compassionate and comprehensive care to our patients. We offer the latest diagnostic and state of the art treatment options for Parkinson's disease and atypical parkinsonian syndromes, tremors, dystonias, myoclonus, tic disorders, restless legs syndrome, blepharospasm , hemifacial spasm and other movement disorders. In addition, we are committed to conducting clinical research in Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders in order to improve the lives of our patients and their families. Additionally, we have a multidisciplinary Huntington's Disease clinic on Fridays of every week, run by Neurologists, Speech Therapist and Geneticists. Most of the movement disorders are treated medically. In certain medically resistant cases, we are also able to refer appropriate patients to Neurosurgery for Deep Brain Stimulation.

Movement disorders are neurological conditions that affect the speed, fluency, quality, and smoothness of movements. They are associated with changes in the brain cells that help us move. Changes in the brain cells can cause involuntary or excessive movements. Other changes in brain cell function can cause a lack of automatic and purposeful movements not related to weakness or spasticity. Generally, movement disorders include the following conditions:

  • Parkinson's disease
  • Atypical Parkinsonism
  • Essential and other tremors
  • Dystonias
  • Huntington's disease
  • Ataxia
  • Myoclonus
  • Restless legs syndrome
  • Tics
  • Tourette's syndrome
  • Wilson disease

We see patients in the USC Neurology Clinic  located in 8 Medical Park (across from the Heart Hospital), a facility readily accessible to persons with physical challenges.We hope you find this website helpful in your health and medical care decisions.
