Movement Disorders, Stereotactic And Restorative Surgery Program


Movement disorders are neurological illnesses characterized by aberrations in the speed, fluidity, and ease of movement. These debilitating conditions are often progressive and have an unfavorable impact on quality of life. Medications offer substantial relief to a great proportion of patients although surgical intervention is sometimes indicated when medical therapy is not sufficiently efficacious. The complex needs of patients with these clinical problems are best managed by neurologists specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of movement disorders, neurosurgeons with an exclusive interest and practice in the operations required to offer optimal results and physiatrists that facilitate recovery. The physicians and surgeons of NJBSC offer this subspecialized service and have established and maintained a comprehensive and innovative movement disorder program and attracts patients from the New York Metropolitan area and beyond. The goal of the program is to offer the finest and most advanced care to patients with these conditions from the time of diagnosis and to respond promptly and insightfully to disease progression. Insight and experience allow for the precise and timely modulation of medical treatments to maximize benefit and limit untoward side effects. Surgical options are recommended in progressive cases after careful consideration with the intent of improving the lives of patients that have otherwise exhausted standard medical therapies.
