The Froedtert & MCW Parkinson’s and Movement Disorders Program participates in national research studies designed to find new, more effective approaches to treating movement disorders. Program providers continually learn from past experience through the Movement Disorders Databank, which allows staff to develop best practices based on successes with prior patients.

Research focuses on therapies, such as deep brain stimulation, that cause changes in brain activity. This research incorporates both patient feedback and computer-based modeling to gain insights that would be difficult to obtain using either method alone. The broad goal of this research is to help develop new evidence-based treatments and achieve the best possible outcomes for patients.
