Multidisciplinary Team of Specialists
Cedars-Sinai’s multidisciplinary approach takes into consideration patients’ whole lives, including but not limited to the out-of-control movement of muscles. Patients with movement disorders also can suffer from depression, anxiety, cognitive problems, and speech and sleep problems. They may need physical and speech therapy, psychiatric help or social work support.
The Movement Disorders Program offers a comprehensive array of expertise in one place at one clinic: neurologists, neurosurgeons, neurophysiologists, neuroradiologists, neuropsychologists, psychiatrists, movement disorders nurses, physical and occupational therapists and speech therapists.
The dedicated team, expert in all aspects of the diagnosis and treatment of Parkinson’s disease and related movement disorders, is led by:
Michele Tagliati, MD, FAAN:
Medical Director of the Cedars-Sinai Movement Disorders Program, Professor, Vice Chairman of Neurology
Adam N. Mamelak, MD, FACS:
Surgical Director of the Movement Disorders and Epilepsy Program and Co-director of the Pituitary Program
Evgeny Tsimerinov, MD:
