Movement Disorders Center

The Plummer Movement Disorders Center (PDMC) at Scott & White, within the Neuroscience Institute offers a variety of treatments for patients suffering from movement disorders-such as Parkinson's disease, tremors, restless legs syndrome, chorea, dystonia and jerks. The PMDC is a division of Scott & White's Neurology Department within the Neuroscience Institute.

The PMDC is a National Parkinson Foundation (NPF) designated Care Center and serves the needs of movement disorders patients, caregivers and healthcare providers in the Central Texas community and vicinity.

Movement disorders are neurological conditions that affect speed, fluency, quality and ease of movement. Abnormal fluency or speed of movement may involve excessive or involuntary movement (hyperkinesia), or slow or absent voluntary movement (hypokinesia).
