A committed, focused team of highly trained specialists in The Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders Program cares for patients with Parkinson’s disease, tremors, dystonia, ataxia, chorea, restless leg syndrome, and tics, as well as functional and unusual movement disorders.
Working with dedication and diligence to deliver exceptional patient care, we integrate best practices, evidence-based medicine, and multi-disciplinary collaboration. We offer a variety of treatment options for individuals with Parkinson’s disease and movement disorders. We recognize that complex movement disorders can also cause non-movement symptoms. Our goal is to provide comprehensive care. Our board-certified neurologists are on the forefront of advances in their fields through continuing education by teaching at The George Washington University School of Medicine & Health Sciences and through biomedical research.
As a division of The GW Medical Faculty Associates (MFA) Department of Neurology, we work closely with our respected colleagues in the MFA Department of Neurosurgery to offer comprehensive functional neurosurgical treatment. Our deep brain stimulation (DBS) program, run by a specialty-trained neurosurgeon and neurologist team, includes pre-operative planning, intra-operative monitoring, and long-term programming for patients with advanced Parkinson’s disease, tremor, and other diagnoses.
Your neurologist and neurosurgeon will work collaboratively to discuss if, when, and what type of surgery is best. If surgery is indicated, we are privileged to have at hand all the resources of The George Washington University Hospital and its Neurosciences Institute, one of the premier neurological centers in the world.
For a variety of disorders, including tremor, writer’s cramp, cervical dystonia (spasmodic torticollis), blepharospasm (involuntary or prolonged blinking), and spasticity, we have extensive training and experience in Botulinum toxin treatment.
