Later, he was accepted for super specialty training in Parkinson’s disease and Movement Disorders at the renowned Mayo Clinic, USA which is consistently ranked as the best hospital in USA. He also did postdoctoral fellowship in botulinum toxin treatment at the prestigious Yale University, where he initiated several clinical studies and streamlined unique treatment options for movement disorders.
Dr. Shivam has expertise in management of acute stroke, epilepsy, headaches including unusual facial pain syndromes such as trigeminal neuralgia, post-herpetic neuralgia, occipital neuralgia, Alzheimer’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Autoimmune neurological conditions and Neuromuscular conditions such as Myasthenia Gravis and Motor Neuron Disease. He has in -depth training of Deep Brain Stimulation for Parkinson’s disease, Essential tremor and Dystonia. During his fellowships, he has injected more than 1000 patients with botulinum toxin for common conditions such as Writer’s cramp, Cervical dystonia, hemifacial spasms, blepharospasm, spasticity (muscle tightness after stroke), Essential Tremor, Parkinson’s disease tremor, Sialorhea (saliva drooling), and uncommon conditions like jaw opening or jaw closing dystonia.
