Myoclonus care at Mayo Clinic

Mayo Clinic experts work together as a team to determine the most appropriate treatment for your condition. Having all of this subspecialized expertise in a single place, focused on you, means that you're not getting just one opinion — your care is discussed among the team, your test results are available quickly, appointments are scheduled in coordination and the most highly specialized experts in the world are all working together to determine what's best for you. What might take months to accomplish elsewhere can typically be done in only a matter of days at Mayo Clinic.

Experience. Mayo Clinic's staff and health care providers, including specialists trained in brain and nervous system conditions, have extensive experience treating people with myoclonus and other movement disorders.

Advanced diagnosis and treatment.
