Jeffrey W Cooney

Assistant Professor of Neurology

I see patients with a broad range of movement disorders, including Parkinson's disease, tremors, ataxia, dystonia, tics, and Huntington's disease. I employ deep brain stimulation (DBS) therapy for selected patients with Parkinson's disease, tremor, or dystonia, and use botulinum toxin injections for certain patients with dystonia, tremors, or tics. I work with an interdisciplinary team of physicians, therapists, and other healthcare providers, with the overall goal of helping to improve the lives of patients with complex neurological diseases.
