This website is intended for our patients and their families and friends.

We are a multidisciplinary clinic dedicated to the treatment of Parkinson’s Disease and other movement disorders (e.g. Huntington’s disease, dystonia, Essential tremor, other parkinsonian syndromes). The clinic is part of the Cumming School of Medicine at the University of Calgary and has been in existence since the 1980s. We are located in the University of Calgary Medical Clinic (UCMC, Area 3) adjoining the Foothills Hospital in northwest Calgary.

Our clinic includes the expertise and services of a dedicated group of  neurologists (all of whom have subspecialty training in Parkinson’s Disease and other movement disorders), neurosurgeon (deep brain stimulator program), geriatrician, psychiatrists, registered nurses and a social worker as well as clerical support staff. All our health care professionals have specialized knowledge about Parkinson’s Disease and other movement disorders.
