Dr. de Marcaida is the Medical Director of the Movement Disorders Center at Hartford Hospital and treats patients with Parkinson’s Disease, Tourette's Syndrome, Chorea, Dystonia, Ataxia, and other Hypo-kinetic and Hyper-kinetic Movement Disorders.

She coordinates care through a multidisciplinary approach and utilizes therapies such as botulin toxin (Botox) injections, oral medications, deep brain stimulation to stimulate specific parts of the brain (acting much like a pacemaker) and an intraintestinal pump designed to administer medications.

Dr. de Marcaida also participates in clinical trials, where physicians and other scientists are attempting to find a cure or, at the very least, find a way of slowing down the progression of neurodegenerative disorders which destroy brain cells that manifest different diseases and conditions associated with movement disorders.
