Welcome to the Division of Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders at UVA. The division consists of 4 movement disorder neurology experts, a nurse practitioner, and a nurse case manager. We provide consultation and management for a range of neurological disorders characterized by involuntary movements and impaired motor control.  We also have an active research program and conduct studies in conjunction with the NIH, Parkinson’s Study Group, and Huntington’s Study Group. Our comprehensive interdisciplinary treatment approach includes pharmacotherapy, non-pharmacologic therapy, chemodenervation, and deep brain stimulation (DBS) and we work closely with our colleagues in neuropsychology, neurosurgery, and physical therapy.
