The University of Chicago Medicine Ataxia Center provides comprehensive diagnosis, treatment and management of ataxias, a group of degenerative neurological diseases that affect a person’s ability to walk, talk and use fine motor skills.
Patients with falling, vertigo and many types of rare gait and balance disorders can benefit from our multidisciplinary, compassionate team of specialists.
Our team provides the most current genetic tests available to diagnose hereditary types of ataxia. We work with our patients to develop individualized treatment plans that can include physical therapy, orthotics, speech therapy and occupational therapy.
Our Ataxia Center is actively involved in research studies, and our patients have access to the latest clinical trials of emerging ataxia therapies.
