    Dr. Cho has expertise in gait and balance impairment due to neurologic disease. Some of the diseases causing gait and balance impairment are Parkinson's disease, atypical parkinsonian syndromes, vertigo, mal de disembarquement syndrome (MdDS), normal pressure hydrocephalus, and cerebellar ataxia. She has extensive experience in deep brain stimulation for the treatment of Parkinson's disease, tremors, and dystonia and botulinum toxin injections for the treatment of movement disorders and spasticity. Her research focuses on studying gait abnormalities in parkinsonian disorders. She collaborated with Dr. Mingjia Dai on a novel treatment for Mal de Debarquement Syndrome that is now being offered at The Mount Sinai Hospital.
