The Division of Pediatric Neurology has a strong commitment to patient care, teaching and research. The division was established at UT Southwestern in the 1980s and became part of the Department of Pediatrics in 2006.

Movement Disorders – The Clinical Center for Movement Disorders at UT Southwestern Medical Center is a large, tertiary referral center that handles nearly 4,000 patient visits each year. Our physicians have extensive experience with patients suffering from Parkinson disease, Huntington disease, tremor disorders, tic disorders, and dystonia. A major advantage to treatment at UT Southwestern is the availability of clinical research programs which allow the possibility of exposure to investigational drugs before they are commercially available. We work closely with ancillary services such as psychiatry, speech, physical and occupational therapy to provide comprehensive care for patients.

Division faculty conduct a variety of neurologic bench/basic research and clinical studies, including clinical trials. Current studies are focused in five areas: metabolic disorders of the nervous system, neuromuscular disease clinical trials, anti-epileptic drug trials, clinical trials in pediatric stroke and clinical studies in the autism spectrum. Research funding from a variety of sources, including the NIH, exceeded $400,000 in 2009. Faculty present results of their work at many national and international meetings and publish articles in peer-reviewed journals.
