The Parkinson Disease and Movement Disorders Program at Upstate Medical University offers comprehensive care for a variety of movement disorders.
Our team of medical professionals include board-certified, fellowship-trained movement disorder neurologists, advanced practice providers, nurses and medical office assistants. Our areas of clinical interest include Parkinson's Disease, tremor, dystonia, tics, myoclonus, Huntington's Disease, dementias associated with Movement Disorders and other choreas.
In collaboration with our colleagues from Upstate Neurosurgery, we have developed a successful movement disorder surgical program that offers deep brain stimulation (DBS) treatment and post-surgical management for patients with Parkinson's disease, essential tremor and dystonia.
We offer specialized treatment with botulinum toxin injections for dystonia and spasticity, and apomorphine injections for Parkinson's disease. We work closely with specialists in genetics, physical medicine and rehabilitation, psychiatry and our pediatric neurologists to provide compassionate care and treatment not only for adults but also for children afflicted by movement disorders.
We are engaged in clinical research and work closely with scientists from our institution and other regional and national institutions to understand the underlying causes of movement disorders with the goal to develop effective treatments.
