Diagnosis and Treatment
The Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders Center at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center offers a multidisciplinary program for the evaluation and treatment of patients with movement disorders such as Parkinson's disease, parkinsonian syndromes, tremors, gait disorders, dystonia, spasticity, dyskinesias, tic disorders, chorea and drug-induced movement disorders.
We offer you and your family highly innovative, intensive and comprehensive care for Parkinson's disease. Your neurologist is a fellowship-trained Parkinson's Disease specialist who coordinates a multidisciplinary team of experts to meet the physical, cognitive, and emotional needs of you and your family.
Deep Brain Stimulation
Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) is an approved treatment for patients with tremor, dystonia and Parkinson's disease when medications are no longer adequate. DBS uses a surgically implanted device called a neurostimulator-similar to a heart pacemaker-to deliver electrical stimulation to targeted areas in the brain that control movement.
We offer wellness programs to help you stay well along with information for patient and caregiver support.
Botulinum toxin clinic
Our center offers a subspecialized botulinum toxin clinic for movement disorders such as spasmodic torticollis (or cervical dystonia), dystonia related to Parkinson's disease, blepharospasm, or hemifacial spasm.
