Parkinson disease

UF Health is a proud Parkinson’s Foundation Center of Excellence. It is also a Parkinson’s Foundation-designated continuing care center, research center and outreach center (all since 2003). Additionally, our institution is home to the Parkinson’s Foundation National Medical Director and director of the world-renowned “Ask the Doctor” forum on Parkinson.org, Dr. Michael Okun. Dr. Okun has helped direct care and research across all 45 NPF centers worldwide since 2006.

Within the Norman Fixel Institute for Neurological Diseases at UF Health, our center’s interdisciplinary focus on Parkinson’s disease is as strong as ever. Patients can potentially receive Parkinson’s treatment from over 10 specialists from different fields, all in one day and from one convenient location. This world-class, patient-centric experience includes fast-track interdisciplinary work-up and care for deep brain stimulation, or DBS, meant for Parkinson’s disease as well as other movement disorders. We also offer on-site services for MRI, speech and swallowing treatment, and physical therapy and occupational therapy.
