Movement Disorders: Dr. Pratap Chand, SLUCare Neurology
Dr. Pratap Chand is a SLUCare neurologist who specializes in the treatment of movement disorders. Dr. Chand frequently treats patients with disorders such as Parkinson's and involuntary movement disorders. Once medicine is no longer yielding the best results for movement disorders, Dr. Chand works with a SLUCare neurosurgeon to perform deep brain stimulation, which is an intricate surgery that helps to calm the nerves affected by movement disorders. Patients who undergo deep brain stimulation can expect a respite from the symptoms of their movement disorder and to regain a little bit of control of their body and movements.
