The Robert and John M. Bendheim Parkinson and Movement Disorders Center at Mount Sinai features state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment services, including inpatient and outpatient consultation, medication management, screening for deep brain stimulation (DBS), and timely follow-up care. Our staff provides comprehensive care designed to improve quality of life for people living with movement disorders.
Our goal is to optimize the quality of life for people living with movement disorders. We work closely with patients and their families to maximize patient safety and to fully understand the impact of these disorders. Our staff also serves the greater movement disorder community by participating in education and awareness programs for both lay and professional audiences.
Advances in Care
At Mount Sinai, we offer the latest treatment for Parkinson’s disease and related movement disorders. These include:
- Botulinum toxin: Botulinum toxin is a medication derived from the bacteria Clostridium botulinum. The toxin is injected into muscles to manage the symptoms of dystonia, spasticity, and other movement disorders. Because the treatment is localized to specific muscles involved in the abnormal movement, many of the side effects that accompany oral medications can be avoided. Our physicians are highly trained and skilled in performing botulinum toxin injections.
- DBS: The Center for Neuromodulation at Mount Sinai offers DBS to improve the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, essential tremor, dystonia, and Tourette syndrome – in some cases, effecting dramatic improvements to motor symptoms and quality of life.
