Donate to Parkinson's Disease & Movement Disorders Research and Care
Parkinson’s disease affects both men and women, and it has no ethnic, economic, or geographic boundaries. In the UCSF Movement Disorders Program, we provide surgical management of Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders including essential tremor, spasmodic torticollis, spasticity, and cerebral palsy.
We know that it is a difficult and often painful journey to make — from being perfectly healthy to feeling the effects of a chronic, progressive disease. Researchers and clinicians focusing on movement disorders are dedicated to revealing the underlying causes of these conditions, and providing the most advanced treatments available. Our studies are exploring fundamental mechanisms in the control of movement and aim to improve the treatment of common movement disorders. Current research underway includes: gene therapy, neurotransplantation, deep brain stimulation, and the neurophysiology of movement disorders.
