Ms Maria Stamelou, head of the HYGEIA Hospital Parkinson’s & Movement Disorder Department, participated in the international edition of the book Parkinson’s Disease and Other Movement Disorders.

Movement disorders are a group of neurological conditions that cause problems in movement, involuntary movements (such as tremor, shaking or contractions), or difficulty walking, as is the case with Parkinson’s disease, which is the most common such condition, affecting about 1% of the population. Their diagnosis and treatment is complicated, but effective, while there have been several fascinating developments made in this field recently.

These are some of the topics discussed in Parkinson’s Disease and Other Movement Disorders, published by Oxford University Press for the Oxford Specialist Handbooks in Neurology series. Ms Stamelou, Assistant Professor of Neurology and head of the relevant department within HYGEIA, co-authored the book along with professors from University College London, UK. The book will assist neurologists and other clinical physicians to identify and manage this significant group of neurological disorders. Written in the form of a concise and user-friendly manual, it constitutes a point of reference for Parkinson’s disease and related disorders. Parkinson’s Disease and Other Movement Disorders in only available in English.
