Traveling to Movement Disorder Specialist
I was excited to be on a Sunday road trip on December 2, 2018, to Gainesville, Florida to meet Dr. Michael Okun, world-renowned movement disorder specialist. In 2002, Dr. Okun and Dr. Kelly Foote formed the University of Florida Health Center for Movement Disorders & Neurorestoration to bring together experts in movement disorders from diverse disciplines from all over the UF Campus. Today the Fixel Center for Neurological Diseases, the Movement Disorders and Neurorestoration Program is an international destination for patient care, research, and teaching. Consolidated in one centralized location on the 4th floor of the Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Institute, the staff coordinates a myriad of advanced medical and surgical services to deliver motor, cognitive and behavioral diagnosis and treatments.
