Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders

Our goal as Spectrum Health’s movement disorder team is to provide patient-centered, state-of-the-art medical care for people with movement disorders by employing cutting edge technology and expertise. 

Movement disorders include a diverse group of diseases of the brain and other areas of the nervous system. You may experience either excessive body movements or a deficit of movements that can interfere with activities of daily living and negatively impact your quality of life. 

Spectrum Health neurological experts specialize in evaluation, treatment and continuing care for patients with movement disorders. If there is a concern for you or your loved ones’ having a movement disorder, please call 616.267.7900 for a consultation with a movement disorders specialist.
