SUMMARY

With the rapid expansion of research on the pathogenesis of movement disorders, the growing availability of novel medical and surgical treatment options for Parkinson's disease, and the increasing prevalence of such disorders in an aging population, physicians face an especially difficult task in keeping their practices up-to-date. In Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders: Diagnosis and Treatment Guidelines for the Practicing Physician, highly experienced clinician-researchers distill this immense amount of new information to create a practice-oriented tutorial for all nonspecialists treating movement disorders. Their book helps physicians to distinguish each disorder, providing a basic understanding of both the test and treatment options needed in active practices, as well as the effective use of the therapeutic recommendations of consulting specialists. The first half of the book is devoted to Parkinson's disease and conditions masquerading as parkinsonism, while the remainder details the recognition and treatment of tremor, dystonia, chorea, myoclonus, tics, gait disorders, restless legs syndrome, the ataxias, conditions resulting in spasms, and the use of botulinum toxin in movement disorders. In all cases the book provides sufficient background so that even relatively inexperienced clinicians can readily master the diagnosis and treatment of these neurologic conditions. Concise, informative, and eminently practical, Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders: Diagnosis and Treatment Guidelines for the Practicing Physician brings today's primary care physician, neurologist, gerontologist, and internist the critically evaluated knowledge and up-to-date expertise needed to treat patients with movement disorders in full confidence
