Movement Disorder Program

Our program for movement disorders provides comprehensive diagnostic, medical and surgical treatment options for patients with Parkinson's disease, essential tremor, dystonia and other movement disorders.

Huntington’s dedicated team of experts offer therapies such as botulinum toxin treatments and deep brain stimulation to assist patients experiencing uncontrollable tremors, muscle spasms, or involuntary movements which greatly affect their everyday lives. Our inpatient neuroscience units are prepared to provide state-of-the-art care and support.

Your Care Team

Our multidisciplinary clinical team includes neurologists, neurosurgeons, psychiatrists, neuropsychologists, neurophysiologists, anesthesiologists, physiatrists, physical therapists and nurse practitioners. The team works very closely to tailor a personalized treatment plan for each patient.

Several of our neurosurgeons hold faculty appointments at California Institute of Technology (Caltech). Caltech scientists and physicians at Huntington Hospital are collaborating on the development of a cortical neural prosthesis to aid paralyzed patients in interacting with their environment.

Support Services

Patient education is an integral component of our program and families play an active role in the treatment process. Although no cure currently exists for Parkinson's disease, Huntington Hospital offers a comprehensive range of pharmacological, physical therapy, and surgical options to assist in controlling the symptoms of Parkinson's disease and improve each patient's quality of life.

Parkinson's community exercise and support groups include a Parkinson's outpatient support group and a Parkinson's caregiver's support group.
