Tyler’s Hope Center for Comprehensive Dystonia Care
The Tyler’s Hope Center for Comprehensive Dystonia Care at UF was created to provide the highest levels of medical and surgical care to patients afflicted with Dystonia.
The UF Center for Movement Disorders and Neurorestoration was designated as the first Tyler’s Hope Center for Comprehensive Dystonia Care in 2008. Dystonia is a movement disorder where muscles co-contract and leave sufferers in abnormal postures. In severe cases sufferers can “look like a pretzel.”
Although no cure is currently available, our interdisciplinary team includes specialized neurologists, neurosurgeons, physician assistants, nurses, physical and speech therapists, psychologists and researchers working together to provide patients with the most advanced treatments while searching for a cure.
