Movement Disorders Overview

People with all types of movement disorders, including the serious, rare or complex, turn to Mayo Clinic neurologists trained in movement disorders for expert evaluation and treatment.

Our doctors and surgeons treat more than 12,000 people with movement disorders every year. Mayo Clinic doctors use advanced imaging and other tests to arrive at an accurate diagnosis. They also have access to innovative and effective treatments to address your symptoms, including onobotulinumtoxinA injections, deep brain stimulation and surgery.

At Mayo Clinic's campus in Arizona, this care and expertise is available at the Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders Center. The specialists of this center also help people with nonmovement symptoms and conditions, including sleep disorders, emotional problems, depression, cognitive disorders, lightheadedness and urinary difficulties.
