Bachmann-Strauss Centers of Excellence

 

Proper diagnosis, treatment and comprehensive care has long been missing for people with dystonia. The nation’s first Bachmann-Strauss Dystonia Center of Excellence was established in New York City to fill that gap and to bring together the best clinical care and coordinated support services.  Now three new Centers's of Excellence, this time for both dystonia and Parkinson's disease have been established all over the country.

 

The Bachmann-Strauss Center's of Excellence is "one-stop shop" at its best!  These multidisciplinary Centers of Excellence bring together a topnotch team of neurologists, including pediatric neurologists, surgeons, psychiatrists, genetic counselors and others, as needed, to confer about a patient’s diagnosis and to develop a comprehensive treatment plan. There is also a vital research component and a fellowship-training program to help encourage more doctors to specialize in dystonia and Parkinson's disease.
