Movement Disorders Program

doctor treats patient with movement disorder

Cedars-Sinai has assembled renowned specialists, working as a coordinated team in its Movement Disorders Program, to provide world-class diagnosis, definitive treatment and long-term management of patients with Parkinson’s disease and related disorders including tremors and dystonia. The team’s goal for Parkinson patients is to stay ahead of a complex and degenerating disease through its early, middle and late stages. For other movement disorders, such as dystonia, the goal often can be a return to a fully functional lifestyle. The team, by bringing to bear a spectrum of medical expertise and care in one spot and in one stop, is dedicated to improving the quality of life for all its patients. The program, supported by the American Parkinson Disease Association, has three linked components: patient care, teaching and research. It provides state-of-the-art specialty treatment, and passes the torch forward by training future leaders in movement disorders and through research and development of new therapies.
