For Medical Professionals


The Movement Disorders Program works with referring physicians to determine the best course of treatment for each patient and keeps the referring physician apprised of the patient’s condition. When it is appropriate, the patient is referred back to their primary care physician for continued management, while the movement disorder specialists at Cedars-Sinai remain available for consultation.

Other Conferences

The departments of Neurology and Neurosurgery also present various professional and community conferences throughout the year.

Fellowship and Training Programs

The program also offers a Movement Disorders Fellowship through the Department of Neurology. A one-year fellowship with a second year option for clinical research is offered to qualified applicants. The fellow will take an active role in patient management, counseling and prevention, interventional therapies, including pharmacotherapy, botulinum toxin injections and Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS).
