Parkinson’s disease is caused when the body doesn’t produce enough of a brain chemical called dopamine, which affects body movements.
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.
Our experienced team will partner with you to create a personalized treatment plan that provides the best care for all the years ahead, always adjusting as your symptoms and life plans change. While our core clinical team deals with movement disorders every day, we also work closely with other specialists at the Ohio State Wexner Medical Center to address any related conditions that you may experience, such as sleep disturbances, urology concerns and depression. Whatever you face, we’ll face it with you!
