UC Davis has an outstanding Movement Disorders Program that provides evaluation, treatment and management of a range of diseases that cause involuntary excessive movements or slow, awkward, deliberate movements.
Movement disorders and diseases we treat
- Parkinson's disease
- Essential tremor
- Several other movement disorders
Patients come from Northern California as well as neighboring states to receive the latest treatments, which include:
- Oral medication
- Botulinum toxin therapy
- DBS implantation and programming
In addition to patient care, program researchers conduct clinical trials as members of the Parkinson Study Group. These researchers from the U.S. and Canada are working to test new drug treatments for the disease, as well as looking into the genetics of those predisposed to the developing it.
