At The Meinders Center for Movement Disorders in Oklahoma City, we treat complex neurological conditions that can cause involuntary and excess movement, impaired balance and coordination issues such as muscle rigidity and slow movement.

We focus on providing care to the whole patient through a unique and thoughtfully designed structure that encourages collaboration among the movement disorder team. Each patient receives comprehensive care from diagnosis to treatment, ongoing support and therapy, thanks to the variety of movement disorder programs and specialists we have available.

The Meinders Center for Movement Disorders continues to expand and grow services to simplify the lifetime management of patients who suffer from complex, often progressive, neurological diseases.
