Movement Disorders
Dyskinesia is the medical term for conditions of the nervous system that can cause abnormal voluntary or involuntary movement, or slow, limited movement. Some of these conditions are the result of Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, or tremors known as dystonias—all of which can be diagnosed, treated, and managed by the highly-skilled Temple neurologists at Jeanes Hospital.

Our Temple Neurosciences Center at Jeanes is one of the most experienced centers in the Delaware valley for managing complex cases of involuntary movements. As part of the advanced Temple Movement Disorders Program, our team of neurologists and neurosurgeons are adept at handling a variety of innovative medical and surgical services required to treat all forms of dyskinesia-related conditions.

The goal of treatment for movement disorders at Jeanes Hospital is to target the underlying condition to relieve symptoms and dramatically improve quality of life for the patient. To achieve that, our neurology team uses the most advanced procedures—including deep brain stimulation for patients with Parkinson’s disease, tremors and dystonias; botulinum toxin treatment for muscle spasms; placement of medication pumps to manage debilitating spasticity—and prescribes the latest medications.

Working closely with patients and their families, our multidisciplinary team develops a compassionate treatment plan, bringing in physical therapists, psychiatrists, rehabilitation physicians, nurse specialists, genetic counselors, and speech and occupational specialists, as needed. We believe this comprehensive approach provides the optimum results for our patients.
