Amar Patel, MD
Amar Patel, MD, treats patients with a variety of complex movement disorders, and has a particular interest in Parkinson’s disease, a brain disorder of the central nervous system that can cause tremors, stiffness or slowing of movement. “Current and future therapies offer patients with Parkinson’s disease the chance to maintain their quality of life,” he says.
An assistant professor of neurology at Yale School of Medicine, Dr. Patel says he was drawn to his field by “the chance to intervene when an often devastating neurological illness impairs a patient’s quality of life.” As a researcher, he is examining the use of deep brain stimulation and botulinum toxin in the treatment of movement disorders.
