Why choose Ohio State for treatment of movement disorders?

Our team is ready to diagnosis and treat any movement disorder that is impacting your life. At the Center for Parkinson's Disease and Related Movement Disorders at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center in Columbus, Ohio, we offer a unique approach to your care. This includes experts from different medical specialties, so you receive the exact help you need for the greatest control of even your most complex symptoms. 

Once you have an exact diagnosis, we’ll help you integrate care into your daily life and simplify scheduling by coordinating multiple doctor appointments in the same day, whenever possible. This means you might meet first with your Neurology team and then with other specialists who have experience treating individuals with movement disorders, such as a urologist for bladder problems or an ophthalmologist for vision issues. 

Our goal is to help you spend less time focused on your disorder, so you have more time to do the things you love.
