    Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center

    A National Parkinson Foundation Center of Excellence


    A diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease or another movement disorder is not a death sentence. Recent advances in medicines and surgical treatments have given you new weapons to fight against your disease, and our doctors at the Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center can put them in your hands.

    For instance, we are the first clinic in the U.S. to offer placement of both deep brain stimulation (DBS) electrodes and stimulators in one surgical procedure instead of two, providing the most efficient and comfortable process possible. In addition, our movement disorders specialists are well-versed in the latest medical treatments and therapies.

    We also provide a robust outreach program that offers programs from painting and yoga to singing and support groups.

    The Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center at Barrow Neurological Institute at Dignity Health St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix, Arizona is a National Parkinson Foundation Center of Excellence.
