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.

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.

Do you need a remote second opinion?

Our professionals will provide you with a medical evaluation without you having to leave your home.

HIFU, non-surgical treatment of Parkinson's disease

The Clinica Universidad de Navarra incorporates the most advanced model of high intensity ultrasound for the treatment of patients with tremor, rigidity or clumsiness that appear in Parkinson's disease.

Why at the Clínica Universidad de Navarra

We are the best private hospital in Spain for the sixth consecutive year
(Health Reputation Monitor Ranking 2019)

Teamwork

We work as a team of neurologists, neurosurgeons, rehabilitators, neurophysiologists, psychologists, psychiatrists and specialized nurses.

Personalized medicine

We carry out the diagnostic process and design the ideal treatment plan for each patient in the shortest time possible.

Technology

We have the latest technology for diagnosis (3Teslas high field MRI and PET) and treatment, (HIFU and deep brain stimulation electrode surgery).

Research

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.

Tremor

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.

Distonies

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.

Myoclonians

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.

Ataxias

The Movement Disorders Unit has a specific neurorehabilitation program for these patients.
