A Diverse Team of Specialists for a Diverse Disorder

The Ataxias represent a diverse group of uncommon degenerative neurological disorders which can be found in all ages and ethnic groups.

Ataxia, meaning the inability to coordinate the movement of muscles, causing clumsy and awkward movements, often causes many other problems as well. Therefore, we have assembled a diverse team of experts to bring the best possible level of care and treatment to those individuals afflicted with these devastating disorders.

Our team is comprised of Pediatric and Adult specialists and represent many departments such as:

  • Neurology 
  • Cardiology 
  • Orthopaedics
