Movement Disorder Center

Unawareness of early motor and non-motor features of Parkinson's disease and related movement disorders makes misdiagnosis common. Not at UC San Diego Health System.

At our Movement Disorder Center, our depth of knowledge of the entire course of diseases, and our understanding of related disorders makes our comprehensive diagnosis and treatment programs stand out.  

We understand how life altering a movement disorder can be for you and your family. We can help.
