About this book

Hyperkinetic Movement Disorders is a state-of-the-art resource devoted to disorders characterized by excessive movement.  Organized according to specific disorders or syndromes, each chapter is written by a group of internationally recognized experts. Chapters have been organized by the individual authors to best highlight the salient features of the disorders.  Each chapter features a video accompaniment that provides highly instructive examples of each disorder, offering clinicians an important video-based tool to aid in making correct diagnoses.  The video is on an accompanying DVD and can also be found at www.springerimages.com/Suchowersky.  Without a visual evaluation of the phenomenology, diagnosis of the hyperkinetic disorder is fraught with error.  Hyperkinetic Movement Disorders is a unique and essential new text written for neurologists, psychiatrists, neurosurgeons, internists, residents and all others interested in movement disorders.  An invaluable resource, it will lead to a better understanding and recognition of the hyperkinetic movement disorders, and that, in turn, will lead to better care for patients.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This is a multi-author book on Hyperkinetic Movement disorders … . The book includes all of the generally accepted hyperkinetic movement disorders as separate chapters. … The ten chapters are easy to read, succinct and give a good overview. … this book can serve as a comprehensive guide to the non-movement disorder specialist and neurologist, to residents and also to allied health care field such as movement disorder nurses and practitioners.” (Mandar Jog, Le Journal Canadien Des Sciences Neurologiques, Vol. 40 (4), July, 2013)
