(From the October 2014 Issue of MedStat)
The Movement Disorders Clinic at Nationwide Children’s specializes in helping infants, children and young adults with common or complex movement problems, including tics, tremors, dystonia and other abnormal, involuntary movements. Movement disorders are often accompanied by additional problems, such as ADHD, OCD/OCS, anxiety, depression, learning problems, headache and sleep problems; therefore it is important to treat the child as a whole, not just the involuntary movements. Debabrata Ghosh, MD, a pediatric neurologist and leading expert in pediatric movement disorders, leads the Movement Disorders program. Dr. Ghosh is one of only a few child neurologists in the United States with advanced training in movement disorders.
Members of the Movement Disorders care team represent a variety of medical disciplines, all working closely to diagnose and treat patients. The specialties include: Neurology, Neurosurgery, Neurodiagnostics, Genetics, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Ophthalmology, Orthopedics, Psychiatry and Social Work.
