Movement Disorders Center: An Overview

For over 12 years, the innovative and comprehensive movement disorders program at New Jersey Brain and Spine has provided complete and expert care for patients suffering from disorders such as Parkinson’s disease (PD), dystonia and essential tremor. These often-progressive disorders can limit a person’s ability to control movement, making daily activities difficult. While they may share some common features, each disorder is unique and often requires an expert to understand the nuances of diagnosis and treatment.

Attracting thousands of patients from the New York Metropolitan area and beyond, our program offers advanced care from the time of diagnosis throughout disease progression. Our highly specialized team of neurosurgeons, neurologists, physiatrists and physical therapists develop personalized care plans for each patient, precisely modulating treatments to maintain overall health, quality of life, and independence. Recognizing that our patients are on a long journey, we take a comprehensive approach to care that incorporates wellness, exercise and complementary therapies as well as the latest pharmacotherapy, medical and surgical care.
