The Association Between Essential Tremor & Parkinsonism
presented by Movement Disorders Specialist Elena Bortan, MD

In her presentation, Dr. Bortan will address the following questions:

  1. Is essential tremor predictive of Parkinson’s disease?
  2. What is epidemiological evidence between essential tremor and other neurodegenerative conditions?

Neurologist Elena Bortan is a movement disorders specialist with the Ayer Neuroscience Institute Chase Family Movement Disorders Center.

Dr. Bortan came to Hartford HealthCare from Middlesex Hospital, where she worked for almost a decade. She earned her medical degree from Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy in Romania. She completed a residency in neurology at Tufts New England Medical Center and a fellowship in movement disorders at the Lahey Clinic.

Fluent in English and Romanian, Dr. Bortan’s areas of clinical interest are movement disorders including Parkinsonism, essential tremor and others; botulinum toxin chemodenervation for dystonia blepharospasm and spasticity; deep brain stimulation; and general neurology. She is board-certified in neurology and a member of the American Academy of Neurology and The Movement Disorder Society.

Additionally, Dr. Leo Nguyen’s team at Five Microns plans to give us a 10-minute video presentation on Tremelo, which uses vibration control techniques to steady a tremoring arm. Dr. Nguyen is an associate professor of mechanical engineering at California State University, Fresno.
