UW Health's Movement Disorders Program, based at University Hospital, provides expertise in the diagnosis and management of neurological conditions that impact the speed, quality and ease of movement.
 
What are movement disoders?
  • Movement disorders can present with slowness, inaccuracy or difficulty in moving, as in the case of parkinsonism or ataxia.
  • Other movement disorders, such as essential tremor, tics and chorea, are associated with excess or unwanted movement.

Our team works with each patients to address not only bothersome physical symptoms but also emotional and cognitive aspects to these conditions that can have a large impact on quality of life.

Treatments

 

Our Movement Disorder specialists create a treatment program that is tailored to the specific needs of the patient. Treatment regimens may include medication management, lifestyle modification, and disease-specific education and support. In some cases, botulinum toxin injections or surgical treatments such as deep brain stimulation (DBS) may be appropriate.
