Accepting New Patients
Our physicians and scientists are dedicated to recognizing, evaluating, treating and understanding the full range of movement disorders, which result in motor control abnormalities. These abnormalities can be caused by diminished or slowed voluntary movements (hypokinetic) or increased involuntary movements (hyperkinetic). Parkinson’s disease is the most common of these hypokinetic degenerative disorders, but we also treat progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP), multiple system atrophy (MSA) and corticobasal ganglionic degeneration. Our expertise in hyperkinetic disorders...
Botulinum toxin injections, commonly referred to by one of the brand names, Botox®, are widely known as a treatment for wrinkles, but the chemical can also help manage dystonia and other movement disorders. We provide diagnostic and therapeutic treatment for patients with hyperactive neurological disorders such as cervical dystonia, hemifacial spasm, blepharospasm, limb dystonia and spasticity. We also treat other conditions such as chronic migraine and severe axillary hyperhidrosis.
At Yale Medicine’s General Neurology Section, we evaluate and treat all neurological conditions. We make sure patients are seen by appropriate subspecialists within the Department of Neurology to provide the best possible care. If a diagnosis is unclear when we initially evaluate a patient, we make internal referrals to our subspecialists to make sure we are on the right path with the right treatment.
