Movement Disorders Unit
"Movement disorders include a group of diseases characterized either by excessive movement (abnormal involuntary movements) or by poor or slow movement (rigid-kinetic syndromes)".
DR. Mª CRUZ RODRÍGUEZ OROZ.
DIRECTOR. DEPARTMENT OF NEUROLOGY
In the Movement Disorders Unit we offer a quick diagnosis and a multidisciplinary treatment. For a complete approach to these diseases we have cutting-edge technology (PET with Fdopa and with FDG, 3Teslas high-field MRI) that allows a more accurate diagnosis.
The Movement Disorders Unit has been accredited in 2024 by the Movement Disorders Study Group of the Spanish Society of Neurology. This certification recognizes hospital clinical units that ensure the best care for patients with Parkinson's and other movement disorders, being the first non-public Spanish center to have obtained this seal of quality.
We treat these disorders with a multidisciplinary approach both with pharmacological treatments, such as surgery (deep brain stimulation) and with cutting-edge techniques such as the treatment of tremor and Parkinson's disease without surgery using high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU). In addition, we have clinical trials in Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders.
The multidisciplinary team of specialists that make up the unit are neurologists, neurosurgeons, neurophysiologists, psychologists, psychiatrists, radiologists, nuclear medicine specialists and clinical trials unit. In addition, a team of specialized nurses is in charge of the follow-up and care of the patient.
In addition, we offer the possibility of making a genetic diagnosis to advance the knowledge of your disease.
The Movement Disorders Unit has a 2-year postgraduate training program in Movement Disorders to train specialists in Neurology in the management and learning of the most advanced therapies for this type of pathology.

We have the latest technology for diagnosis (3Teslas high field MRI and PET) and treatment, (HIFU and deep brain stimulation electrode surgery).
We work together with the Neuroscience Area of the Cima Universidad de Navarra in the development of new treatments and we participate in clinical trials.
Diseases we treat
Our specialized professionals of first international level offer you the possibility of an accurate and fast diagnosis with vanguard technology (3T high field MRI, PET) physiological studies, cognitive evaluation, and genetic diagnosis.
Parkinson's disease and other parkinsonisms
Our technology allows for precise diagnosis and personalized treatment. For the treatment, the patient with Parkinson counts on vanguard technology like the high intensity focused ultrasounds (HIFU), and the surgery of deep brain stimulation by means of electrodes.
In the Clinic we have ongoing clinical trials that aim to offer therapeutic alternatives to patients and programs of neurorehabilitation and cognitive stimulation.
We are specialists in the study and neurophysiological recording of tremor for an accurate diagnosis.
For its treatment, we have state-of-the-art technology such as HIFU and deep brain stimulation by means of electrodes.
We have botulinum toxin infiltration and in the indicated cases, we perform surgical treatment by deep brain stimulation with electrodes.
Tics and Gilles de la Tourette Syndrome
We offer surgical treatment with deep brain stimulation in severe cases without pharmacological control.
We have a multidisciplinary team for Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
We have the latest technology to achieve an accurate neurophysiological diagnosis to guide the most appropriate diagnosis and treatment.
Evaluation by experienced professionals is important since myoclonias can be the manifestation of neurodegenerative diseases.
The Movement Disorders Unit has a specific neurorehabilitation program for these patients.
