The Movement Disorders Center at Baylor College of Medicine, Department of Neurology, was selected by the Huntington's Disease Society of America as the HDSA Center of Excellence in 2001. Directed by Dr. Joseph Jankovic, Professor of Neurology, the Huntington Disease Center of Excellence (COE) is committed to providing the most expert and compassionate care for patients with HD. In addition to social services, physical, occupational and speech therapy, the patient's condition is managed by a team of skilled clinicians with medications and other therapies targeted to the specific neurologic and psychiatric symptoms.
