Movement disorders are some of the most challenging diseases to diagnose and treat.
The field focuses on movement-affecting complications that do not fall into other established categories of disease — making this group of disorders especially difficult to understand.
In recent years, however, there has been tremendous growth in new diagnostic information, pharmacological and neurosurgical treatments for movement disorders, as well as a greater understanding of impaired motor control function. MDS offers you and your patients an essential link to this knowledge.

- Parkinson's disease and Parkinsonism
