Abington Memorial Hospital’s Neurosciences Institute Opens Movement Disorders Center

Abington, PA (PRWEB) June 19, 2013

The Movement Disorders Center combines the expertise of neurologists, neurosurgeons, psychiatrists and urologists with specialists in physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech pathology. The team works with patients and their family members to manage diseases and conditions to improve overall quality of life. Patients also have the opportunity to participate in the latest investigational clinical trials and research.

“Movement disorders can be relentlessly progressive and disabling conditions, but in recent years, advancements have been made in understanding the disorders and developing treatments,” said James H. Cook, MD, medical director, Movement Disorders Center. “We offer both medical and surgical options, and the latest protocols and equipment to diagnose and develop individualized treatment plans.”

The experts at the Movement Disorders Center diagnose and treat a full range of movement disorders including Parkinson’s disease, Tourette’s syndrome, Huntington’s disease, Restless Leg Syndrome and Essential Tremor. These specialists have experience and tools to manage even the most challenging conditions.

In addition, neurosurgeons may perform pre-operative evaluations for Parkinson’s patients. If appropriate, neurosurgeons may perform deep brain stimulation (DBS), a minimally invasive, highly-effective procedure that delivers controlled electrical signals to precisely targeted areas of the brain through a tiny, implanted wire with electrodes attached. The electrical stimulation helps control the tremors that are characteristic of Parkinson's disease by shutting off the hyperactivity in the portion of the brain which controls this movement.

The Movement Disorders Center is conveniently located at the Abington Health Center – Warminster, in the Stein Building at 205 Newtown Road. For more information, visit our website or to make an appointment, please call us at 215-441-6741.
