Parkinson’s Disease & Movement Disorders
The Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders Center is part of the Department of Neurology at Boston Medical Center (BMC). The Center has a national reputation for excellence in the clinical management of movement disorder patients. Our multidisciplinary team is comprised of movement disorder neurologists, neurosurgeons, nurse specialists, social workers, and researchers.
Our mission is to provide exceptional, comprehensive care to individuals and families effected by movement disorders such as:
- Parkinson's disease
- Multiple system atrophy (MSA)
- Progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP)
- Huntington's disease
- Restless legs syndrome
To fulfill this mission, we provide more than top-notch clinical care. We offer an extensive program of education, support, and awareness for patients, families, healthcare providers, and the community at large about Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders. We are pleased to host an on-site American Parkinson Disease Association Information & Referral Center.
April is Parkinson's Disease Awareness Month
Through clinical research, we are helping to advance new knowledge that will help doctors and medical scientists understand the causes of movement disorders and find new and effective treatments. BMC is one of only nine hospitals in the country - and the only hospital in Boston - to be designated by the American Parkinson's Disease Association as a Center for Advanced Research.
Our accomplished neurological staff includes physicians who serve on the prestigious American Parkinson's Disease Association Scientific Advisory Board. In addition to specialized clinical care, individuals may choose to participate in the latest clinical trials investigating new medications and therapies. For more information on these trials, please visit the Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders Center website, hosted by Boston University.
