The Comprehensive Movement Disorder and Spasticity Clinic is made up of experts across multiple specialties. The team works together to provide the best treatment plan for patients with complex movement disorders and spasticity. In this environment, specialists in neurology, neurosurgery, orthopedics and rehabilitation medicine simultaneously address each child's medical needs in a single visit.
What to expect during your appointment
The clinic schedules the patient for a 60 to 90-minute appointment. All specialists are in the same room at the same time, collaborating with one another and discussing the child’s case. Our team also includes the child’s family and other disciplines such as social work, nutrition, and physical therapy as needed. This approach provides better outcomes, increases patient and family satisfaction, and reduces time at the hospital.
The clinic is conducted the fourth Wednesday of every month at the Children’s Mercy Adele Hall campus in the orthopedic clinic.
