The Bachmann-Strauss Dystonia Center of Excellence at Beth Israel
Proper diagnosis, treatment and comprehensive care has long been missing for people with dystonia. The nation’s first-ever 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.

Our multidisciplinary Dystonia Center of Excellence brings together a top 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.
The Bachmann-Strauss Dystonia Center of Excellence is located at:
Beth Israel Medical Center Department of Neurology
Phillips Ambulatory Care Center
10 Union Square East, Suite 5K

The Center is headed by Susan Bressman, MD. Dr. Bressman is chairman, The Alan & Barbara Mirken Department of Neurology, Beth Israel Medical Center, and professor of neurology, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, New York City. For more information visit Beth Israel's website here
