Pietro Mazzoni, M.D., Ph.D.
Associate Professor of Neurology
Dr. Mazzoni is a physician-scientist with specialized expertise in movement disorders and human motor control. His research focus is how neurological disorders, such as Parkinson’s disease and Huntington’s disease, affect our ability to control our movements. He uses motion capture and related techniques to study abnormal movements and to develop physical and technological interventions to reduce the impact of motor symptoms on daily activities. This research is carried out in the Movement Science Research Center at Washington University’s Program in Physical Therapy
Dr. Mazzoni evaluates and treats adult patients with movement disorders, including Parkinson’s disease, other forms of parkinsonism, tremor, tics, Tourette syndrome, gait disorders, dystonia, chorea, myoclonus, normal pressure hydrocephalus, and cerebellar ataxia.
