What We Do

Movement Disorders involve problems with too much or too little movement because of neurological conditions. Some of these disorders are familiar, such as Parkinson's disease, but there are many others: Dystonia, tremor, Myoclonus, tics, ataxia and other inherited conditions.

Our clinic provides care for more than 9,000 visits a year. Our work includes botulinum toxin treatment, clinical trials and research that uses imaging of the brain, surgery, surveys, as well as the study of genetics and brain function.

We also provide a palliative care program for patients with Parkinson's disease and their families to help manage the symptoms of the disease and the changes it brings to life at home. Learn more about the palliative care services that UHN provides.
