The Movement Disorders Program

Welcome to the website of the University of Calgary Movement Disorders Clinic. This website is intended for our patients and their families and friends.

We are a multidisciplinary clinic dedicated to the treatment of Parkinson’s Disease and other movement disorders (eg, Huntington’s Disease, dystonia, Essential tremor, other parkinsonian syndromes). The clinic has existed at the University of Calgary since the 1980s.  We are located in the University of Calgary Medical Clinic (UCMC, Area 3) adjoining the Foothills Hospital in northwest Calgary.

Our clinic includes the expertise and services of five neurologists (all of whom have subspecialty training in  Parkinson’s Disease and other movement disorders),  one neurosurgeon (deep brain stimulator programme), two psychiatrists, six registered nurses and a social worker. All our health care professionals have specialized knowledge about Parkinson’s Disease and other movement disorders.
