Parkinson's Disease & Movement Disorders

Our multidisciplinary team evaluates and treats patients with all types of movement disorders in a learning environment that promotes clinical and basic science research. We offer a range of services, from early diagnosis and medical management to advanced interventions such as botulinum toxin injections and deep brain stimulation (DBS). DBS is a surgical option for the treatment of Parkinson's disease, essential tremor, dystonia and other disorders of brain function when medical management is insufficient.

We balance these medical and procedural interventions with noninvasive therapies and innovative neurowellness programs to improve our patients' overall health and well-being. Our goal is to treat the whole patient - not just the disease.

Distinctions of our Program

  • We were the first in the country to receive The Joint Commission Disease-Specific Care Certification in Parkinson’s disease (December 2012)
  • We developed RENEW Carolinas, an innovative neurowellness program that’s the first of its kind in the nation. Driven by research that aims to improve the quality of life of patients with Parkinson’s disease, RENEW (Research Education in Neuro-Wellness) is a joint initiative by Carolinas HealthCare System Neurosciences Institute, Carolinas Rehabilitation and the YMCA. It is designed to help patients maintain or increase independence, safety and well-being by engaging in a culture of active lifestyles. Under the direction of Sanjay Iyer, MD, this programmatic model will incorporate exercise and wellness across all neurological conditions treated at Carolinas HealthCare System.
