The London Movement Disorders Centre under the direction of Dr. Jog has been operating since 1998 and continues to grow its geographic reach, patient volume, and research capacity.  In addition to Parkinson's Disease, Essential Tremor, Dystonia, Huntington, we diagnose and treat many other related movement disorders. Our vision to become the best provider of care for our patients, and advance the development of new diagnostic and therapeutic treatments for movement disorders. Our four focuses are:

1. Patient Care: To provide outstanding clinical care through local and outreach programs abroad
2. Clinical Research: To advance our extensive research program by collaborating with other centres
3. Education and Training: To deliver world-class training to future movement disorder specialists
4. Technology Commercialization: To quickly move from research to treatment for our patients now

Since 2008, the LondonMDC has been awarded many times the prestigious designation of Centers of Excellence by the Parkinson's Foundation. As a National Parkinson Foundation Center of Excellence, we pursue the highest standards of clinical care by creating a network of professionals from a variety of disciplines to treat our patients. Our innovative research initiatives improve quality of life for individuals living with Parkinson disease and their care partners.
