Our Approach

We offer state-of-the-art treatment strategies, including botulinum toxins for Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders.

Our Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) Clinic provides patient screening before DBS surgery for uncontrolled symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, essential tremor and dystonias. Our specialists work closely with the stereotactic neurosurgeons in the Department of Neurosurgery to prepare for DBS surgery and conduct DBS device programming and adjustments after surgery.

Our treatment of Restless Leg Syndrome features physicians and scientists from within the Departments of Neurology and Pulmonary, Critical Care & Sleep Medicine. Our goal is to provide excellent care to patients who suffer from sensory, motor, psychologic, and sleep symptoms related to RLS.

Our program is one of eight RLS Quality Care Centers in the world recognized and supported by the RLS Foundation., We have expertise in the assessment and treatment of conditions that occur with RLS including sleep-disordered breathing, depression, and insomnia. We work with Yale Medicine physicians to provide sleep studies and neuroimaging to our patients. Our treatment strategies include the use of the most up-to-date medications and we offer intravenous infusions of iron.
