Together with our valued patients and their families, we provide outstanding management and seek to develop better treatments for movement disorders. We will continue our research to identify the earliest changes in the brain that result in involuntary movements, define the genetic and/or environmental contributions, and test new therapies to improve the lives of those with movement disorders.

The Center for Neuromodulation at The Mount Sinai Hospital uses cutting-edge technology to restore function or to prevent further functional declines for patients who suffer from debilitating neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, essential and other tremors, trigeminal neuralgia and chronic pain. We also treat refractory psychiatric disorders such as major depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder and Tourette's disorder. Led by Dr. Brian H. Kopell, MD and Dr. Susan Bressman, MD, Co-Directors of the Movement Disorder Institute, along with their team, the center performs minimally invasive procedures such as deep brain stimulation (DBS), cortical stimulation, spinal cord/peripheral nerve stimulation and vagus nerve stimulation to treat neurological and movement disorders to ultimately improve patients’ quality of life. Our physicians are committed to developing and rapidly adopting new technologies as they become available for functional brain disorders and refining current surgical techniques to make implantation surgeries safer and more effective.

 At Northwell Health’s Movement Disorders Center, we understand that Parkinson’s disease affects not only the person living with the disease, but their loved ones as well.  Dedicated to improving the lives of everyone that comes through our doors, we provide the latest in both diagnostic and treatment options, including minimally invasive and surgical procedures such at deep brain stimulation (DBS).  Our internationally recognized, multidisciplinary team includes fellowship-trained neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuropsychologists, nurses and nurse practitioners, all committed to providing coordinated care with compassion.  

Movement disorders research at the Susan and Leonard Feinstein Center for Neurosciences is focused on improvements in diagnosis, to understanding the underlying causes of the diseases, to assessing emerging therapies. There is also an emphasis on clinical trials, including those related Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease and other movement disorders.

For more information about our program, please visit the Northwell Health Movement Disorders Center or call 844-56NEURO (844-566-3876).


The physicians and surgeons of North Jersey Brain & Spine have offered expert, innovative, personalized and compassionate care for patients with spinal and neurological disorders for over 20 years.

The distillation of these efforts has translated in a measurable and lasting improvement in quality of life for patients and their families.

Sub-specialties include: complex and minimally invasive spine, brain tumors, functional neurosurgery, endovascular neurosurgery, pediatric neurosurgery and a movement disorder neurologist.


The Movement Disorders and Parkinson’s Disease Center at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School

The Movement Disorders Center is a major regional referral center associated with the American Parkinson's Disease Association, the Parkinson Study Group, the Dystonia Medical Research Foundation, the International Tremor Foundation and CurePSP. Our physicians provide consultation, diagnostics and long-term care of patients with movement disorders, including Parkinson's disease, progressive supranuclear palsy, dystonia (such as torticollis, blepharospasm and Meige syndrome), essential tremor, Huntington's disease and ataxic disorders.

Additional resources are available at the American Parkinson’s Disease Association Information and Referral Center -New Jersey at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital

The Stony Brook Movement Disorders Center provides customized care for people with movement disorders such as Parkinson's disease, atypical parkinsonian disorders, Huntington's disease, essential tremor, dystonia and Tourette's syndrome. With recognized expertise in diagnosing challenging cases and treating complex movement disorders, Stony Brook Movement Disorders is the destination for those whose conditions require the full spectrum of care from physical therapy to medical treatment to neurosurgery.



The Movement Disorders Program at Yale Medicine and Yale New Haven Health offers a comprehensive multi-disciplinary approach with internationally recognized physicians, neurosurgeons and scientists dedicated to the diagnosis, continued scientific understanding and treatment of a wide range of movement disorders. Our team provides prompt consultations and readily cares for patients with Parkinson's disease and related illnesses, tremor disorders (i.e. essential tremor), dystonias, Huntington’s disease and other movement disorders.

We offer the most cutting edge treatment options in state-of-the-art facilities, which are simply unsurpassed in the New England corridor.  More specifically, we routinely perform Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) for eligible patients diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease (i.e. medication refractory, has been diagnosed for at least 5 years, etc.) and other movement disorders. This allows our patients with otherwise debilitating conditions to have a noticeable improvement in the quality of their lives.
