    Collapse overview
    Dr. Mahesh Padmanaban's primary clinical interest is in movement disorders, which includes tremor, dystonia, hemifacial spasm, blepharospasm, tics and Tourette's syndrome, chorea and Huntington's disease, Parkinson's disease (PD), Lewy Body Dementia (LBD), progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP), multiple system atrophy (MSA), and cortical basal ganglionic degeneration (CBGD). His treatment methods include the use of medications, botulinum toxin injections and deep brain stimulation (DBS) surgery when applicable for the treatment of these neurological conditions.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
