Movement Disorder Center

Recognized as a Center of Excellence by the National Parkinson Foundation, UC San Diego Health System is recognized providing personalized state-of-the-art care to each patient.

Unawareness of early motor and non-motor features of Parkinson's disease and related movement disorders can make an accurate diagnosis difficult. 

At the Movement Disorder Center at UC San Diego Health System, we are able to provide a comprehensive diagnosis and tailored treatment plan thanks to our in-depth knowledge of the entire course of diseases and intricate understanding of related disorders.  

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