With coverage of all major disease categories, this essential handbook belongs in the pocket of any clinician who suspects a movement disorder in a patient.The book is organized by medical, behavioral, surgical, and non-pharmacological treatment approaches to movement disorders. Opening chapters walk the practitioner through clinical presentation, diagnosis, and work-up of common and uncommon disorders, sleep-related movement disorders, eye and vestibular function, including pediatric issues. Behavioral and psychiatric complications for Parkinson disease, Huntington disease, and Tourette syndrome follow, with a fully reconfigured chapter on functional movement disorders, incorporating changes in classification and treatment approach. Expanded chapters on surgical devices and indications address deep brain stimulation surgery; lesioning, shunts, and pumps; post-operative care; and neuropsychological, social, and ethical issues.
