Advances in Care
The Robert and John M. Bendheim Parkinson and Movement Disorders Center at The Mount Sinai Health System offers the latest treatments for Parkinson’s disease and related movement disorders. These include:
- Deep brain stimulation. Mount Sinai offers deep brain stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus to improve the primary symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, in some cases effecting dramatic improvements to motor symptoms and quality of life.
- Botulinum toxin. Botulinum toxin is a medication we inject into your muscles to relax them. Botulinum toxin is one of the most toxic substances in nature. However, when injected therapeutically in small doses, it is a safe and effective treatment for a variety of medical disorders, including blepharospasm, cervical dystonia, and spasticity. Our doctors are all highly trained and adept at performing botulinum toxin injections.
- Clinical trials. Mount Sinai is at the forefront of basic and clinical research in Parkinson's disease, dystonia, and other movement disorders. You may view our comprehensive list of current clinical trials [PDF] or visit our clinical trials page (enter "Parkinson's Disease" or your particular movement disorder for a list of clinical trials for that particular disease.) If you are interested in participating in our clinical trials or would like more information, please contact one of our research study coordinators, Dhita Ngy or Joan Bratton.
At The Mount Sinai Health System, our physicians are experts in Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders. U.S. News & World Report ranks us among the nation's top 25 programs for neurological care.
