The Movement Disorders Division of the Department of Neurology at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School provides complete evaluation, diagnosis, and management for all types of movement disorders. Movement disorders comprise a wide variety of neurological conditions that affect the ability to produce and/or control the body’s movements, and include Parkinson's disease, tremor, dystonia, chorea, ataxia, and tics. We work with patients and their caretakers and families to develop comprehensive treatment plans that meet patients' needs and goals, and improves quality of life.
