Our Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders Care Team

At the University of Chicago Center for Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders, we bring together a multidisciplinary team of neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuropsychiatrists, neuropsychologists, neurophysiologists, radiologists and nuclear medicine specialists.

Our team is led by highly renowned neuroscience experts who are fellowship-trained -- an important distinction that means they completed additional training in their subspecialty after their medical residencies.

Our physicians make it a priority to be as accessible and responsive as possible when you have questions and concerns. Our physician team works in close partnership with nurses who also have advanced skill and training in neuroscience care. Following treatment, our physical, occupational, and speech therapists help patients to regain function and reduce pain.
