Norton Neuroscience Institute provides comprehensive care to patients with Parkinson’s disease, essential tremor, dystonia and other movement disorders affecting brain and spinal cord function. Our team of specialty trained neurosurgeons, neurologists, neuropyschologists, physician assistants and nurse clinicians strive to provide excellent clinical care and improve the quality of life of our patents.
While most movement disorders can be treated with medication, surgery may be the answer for some patients. Surgical interventions, such as deep brain stimulation (DBS), can often improve symptoms and lessen pain for patients whose medication has failed or whose medication is causing significant side effects.
The rehabilitation program at the Cressman Center at Norton Brownsboro Hospital specializes in movement disorders, which include Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, essential tremor and dystonia, and provides a multidisciplinary approach to treatment, including physical therapy, speech-language pathology and occupational therapy. The rehabilitation team also provides patients with consistent follow-up over time.
