Movement Disorders are a group of neurological illnesses that affect one’s ability to move normally and include Parkinson’s disease, tremors, Tourette’s syndrome, Huntington’s disease, dystonia, restless legs syndrome and ataxia. Collectively, these disorders directly affect well over a million people in the United States alone.
The Movement Disorders Center was founded in 2012 to provide state of the art interdisciplinary clinical care and community outreach to patients and families in the Rocky Mountain Region, to pursue research to treat and prevent these disorders and to educate the next generation of clinicians and researchers.
The University of Colorado has a long and distinguished history of excellence in this area including the first and largest trial of cell transplantation for Parkinson’s disease, development of the most widely used Speech therapy for Parkinson’s disease, ground-breaking work in the description of Fragile-X Tremor Ataxia Syndrome, development of the first palliative care clinic in the United States focused on movement disorders and one of the largest deep brain stimulation surgery centers in the country.
