Expert Diagnosis and Treatment of Huntington’s Disease
Huntington's disease (HD) is an inherited condition that causes a progressive breakdown of nerve cells in the brain over time. Most people with HD develop symptoms that impact their mental and physical abilities in their 30s or 40s, but symptoms may appear earlier or later in life. At BIDMC, our multidisciplinary team works together with you and your family to offer innovative and compassionate care to meet your physical, cognitive and emotional needs.
