Division of Movement Disorders
Our division consists of nine movement disorder neurologists who specialize in the full range of neurological disorders that affect movement, such as Parkinson's disease and other Parkinsonian disorders, essential tremor and other tremor disorders, dystonia, tics and Tourette syndrome, myoclonus, ataxias, and other movement disorders. We average seeing over 3,500 patients annually at the Comprehensive Parkinson Disease and Movement Disorder Clinic located at The Kirklin Clinic at UAB.
We offer comprehensive diagnostic services and utilize a full range of treatment approaches including medications, physical, occupational and speech therapy, deep brain stimulation surgery, neuropsychological evaluations and treatment, and clinical trials testing new medical and surgical therapies, including "neuroprotective therapies" for PD. We also offer botulinum toxin injection therapy for dystonia, spasticity and other movement disorders.
