Artists who rely on steady hands, precise footwork or control of their body’s movement overall can turn to the Center for the Performing Artist at Weill Cornell Medicine for expert neurological care tailored to their performance needs.
Our neurologists and neurosurgeons are among the best in the nation, noted not only for their expertise but for their work to develop new and better ways to treat neurological conditions.
Working in partnership with NewYork-Presbyterian, New York’s #1 hospital for 16 consecutive years, our program is one of the top five neurology and neurosurgery programs in the country, according to U.S. News and World Reports.
Weill Cornell Medicine also has an outpatient unit dedicated to the diagnosis and management of disorders that affect movement. The Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders Institute provides comprehensive and compassionate care by offering 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.
At the Center for the Performing Artist at Weill Cornell Medicine, artists receive personalized care as soon as they contact us. Our staff will work with you to find the best doctor for your needs; assist you with scheduling medical appointments, test and procedures; and arrange for any referrals, all free of charge.
That patient-centered approach continues once an artist meets our medical team. Our physicians and medical staff – including neuropsychologists, therapists and allied health personnel – work together to form a team of specialists dedicated to addressing each patient’s individual needs and concerns.
