In our Movement Disorders Clinic at UAMS, we see patients who experience tremors, involuntary movements and gait difficulty.
To combat movement disorders, our caring and compassionate staff members provide a well-coordinated, multidisciplinary approach. Our neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuropsychologists and other specialists combine their expertise to help treat your condition effectively. Close collaboration between the different departments ensures better care for you.
