Dr. Waugh's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Waugh "Dr. Jeff Waugh is a physician-scientist whose clinical and research interests converge in the study dystonia, a highly-disabling movement disorder that leads muscles to stiffen, twist, and contort the sufferer. Twenty percent of his time is spent directing the Pediatric Movement Disorders and Deep Brain Stimulation Program, the only such program in New England. This position allows us to capture the bulk of children with dystonia in Massachusetts, and through the quaternary referral base of Boston Children's and Massachusetts General Hospitals, we have recruited dystonia patients from many parts of the United States and the world. The remaining 80% of Dr. Waugh's time is spent researching the maladaptive motor control networks that are the pathophysiologic underpinnings of dystonia. Though dystonia is the third-most common movement disorder (incidence of 1:1000) and we have identified many genetic and brain-injury causes, we do not understand the mechanism by which these diverse insults can sum to produce the common features of dystonia. Dr. Waugh's goal is to understand the structural alterations that subserve dystonia, to understand the factors that influence the spread of dystonia from one body area (focal) to involve most of the body (generalized), and to identify brain regions that are potential targets for therapeutic intervention by deep brain stimulation."
