Movement Disorders Services

Movement disorders are a group of conditions that affect children and adolescents, manifesting as involuntary movements of body parts in the form of tremor, dystonia, dyskinesia. Detailed clinical evaluation may help in recognising the pattern which enables the diagnosis of underlying brain disorder leading to these abnormal movements. Management opinion is provided for:

  • Tic disorders
  • Tourette’s syndrome
  • Paroxysmal dyskinesia
  • Other movement disorders

Complex movement disorders not responding to multiple medications and having significant impact on function of a child may be candidates for life changing Deep Brain Stimulation.
