 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.​

 Meet Our Team

​​Our Team Approach

The Movement Disorders Clinic was established in the 1980s and has grown from a single neurologist to the largest clinic of its kind in Canada, with nine faculty neurologists working with a number of Fellows and nurses. Thanks to generous philanthropic support, we are now entitled as the Edmond J. Safra Program in Parkinson's Disease and the Morton and Gloria Shulman Movement Disorders Clinic. We have also been awarded a Parkinson’s Foundation Center of Excellence designation due to our international reputation for excellence in research, teaching and patient care.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​There’s much more to movement disorders than tremors and unsteadiness. People with movement disorders can suffer personality changes, trouble sleeping and memory loss. Some disorders are very complex and can have a great impact on a person’s life.

At Krembil Neuroscience Centre, we want to change that. We want to restore a patient’s health when it comes to their brain and slow the progress of their disease.
