Interdisciplinary Evaluation for International Movement Disorders Patients

Center for Movement Disorders and Neurorestoration Announces a Fast-Track Interdisciplinary Evaluation for International Movement Disorders Patients

The Center for Movement Disorders and Neurorestoration has become known as a worldwide leader in the fast-track clinical evaluation for deep brain stimulation (DBS) surgery for Parkinson’s disease, dystonia, and other neuropsychiatric conditions.  Many centers around the world have emulated UF’s published process.

We are happy to announce a fast-track for the evaluation of international patients seeking an opinion on the medical or surgical treatment (DBS) of a movement disorder or neuropsychiatric condition.

How your visit will work

Travel to Gainesville and see a neurologist, neurosurgeon, neuropsychologist, psychiatrist, speech/swallow therapist, physical therapist, and occupational therapist all over two days.

Fly into the Gainesville, FL Regional Airport on a Sunday and stay at the University of Florida Hilton Conference Center Hotel (34th Street and Hull Road), and on Monday morning walk across the street to the state-of-the-art Center for Movement Disorders and Neurorestoration.

We will tailor a two day experience for international patients with Parkinson’s disease, parkinsonism, progressive supranuclear palsy, multiple system atrophy, corticobasal degeneration, dystonia, ataxia, Tourette syndrome, tics, Huntington’s disease, chorea, myoclonus or gait disorders.

Additionally, we will tailor an international patient experience for the workup of deep brain stimulation (DBS) for any movement disorder (including Parkinson’s disease, tremor, dystonia, MS tremor, others), but also for obsessive compulsive disorder, depression, Tourette syndrome, and other neuropsychiatric conditions.
