Parkinson and Other Movement Disorders

The movement disorders team actively advances Parkinson’s disease treatment through leading-edge clinical research, outreach and exceptional clinical care.

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

At UC San Diego Health, we can provide a comprehensive diagnosis and tailored treatment plan, thanks to our in-depth knowledge of Parkinson's disease and understanding of related disorders.  

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

Deep Brain Stimulation

Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a surgical procedure used to treat movement disorders such as Parkinson's disease, dystonia and Tourette syndrome. Learn more about DBS at UC San Diego.



Neurologists, bioengineers, scientists, clinical investigators, neuropsychologists and neuroradiologists collaborate to advance science in ways that directly benefit patients with movement disorders. More about our research.
