The Parkinson's Disease & Movement Disorders Institute is an outpatient unit within the Department of Neurology at Weill Cornell Medicine. We specialize in the diagnosis and management of Parkinson's disease and other disorders affecting movement. Using a team approach, dedicated to providing individualized, compassionate and comprehensive care, we offer the latest diagnostic and state of the art treatment options for Parkinson's and related diseases, as well as dystonia, ataxia, chorea, tic disorders and hemifacial spasm.

We work with a multidisciplinary team of specialists including neuropsychologists, therapists and allied health personnel to optimize each person's care. Our staff also provides valuable resources for patients, families and caregivers. The Program offers botulinum toxin therapy for patients with dystonia and other involuntary movements, and, together with the Center for Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery directed by Michael G. Kaplitt, MD, PhD, we offer at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital the latest in surgical treatment for Parkinson's disease, dystonia and tremor.

We are involved in a number of studies providing interested patients with the opportunity to participate in developing a better understanding and treatment of Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders. Ongoing pharmacotherapy trials, in conjunction with other research centers, also provide the option for patients to try new therapeutics.

If you have advanced Parkinson’s disease and are experiencing dyskinesia symptoms or motor fluctuations that are not responding to medicines, you may be eligible for a clinical trial examining a new minimally invasive method to treat your symptoms.
