ETMC Neurological Institute

Advancing Care. Enhancing Lives.

Laura Wu, MD, PhD


Laura Wu, MD, PhD, comes to ETMC with a long list of accomplishments. They include three clinical fellowships in movement disorders, a number of medical honors and awards, and many published articles and presentations relating to her field of expertise.

Dr. Wu’s professional drive comes from her personal desire to help people with neurodegenerative conditions. “I have a lot of passion for taking care of patients. It’s so important to establish good communication because you have to know the person before making any diagnosis or treatment plans. Everyone has different needs and expectations.”

Working alongside George Plotkin, MD, at the ETMC Movement Disorders Center is the perfect setting for Dr. Wu and her ongoing quest for knowledge. “I’m very impressed with Dr. Plotkin’s background and the level of treatment that takes place here. For instance, I’ve never heard of a place that has four neurosurgeons who do deep brain stimulation procedures. I am looking forward to learning from them all.”
