UF Center for Movement Disorders & Neurorestoration
The UF Center for Movement Disorders & Neurorestoration is a perfect representation of UF’s three-pronged mission, as it offers doctors who are experts in patient care, research and teaching. The center was created in July 2002 and remains one of the youngest, most collaborative, and most rapidly growing centers in the McKnight Brain Institute and College of Medicine’s enterprise.
The center’s interdisciplinary team of doctors, social workers, physical therapists and rehabilitation specialists provide expert care for conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, Dystonia, and supranuclear palsy. Their pioneering use of Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) surgery has literally changed the lives and futures of patients affected by a broad range of movement disorders. The UF MDC is considered a national leader in areas such as Parkinson’s disease and Dystonia.
