April Meeting Update–Guest Speaker

Excited to announce that Dr. Sean Rogers, Neurologist and Movement Disorders Specialist at Inova, has confirmed his attendance at our meeting tomorrow—Wednesday April 3. Dr. Rogers launched the Inova Movements Disorders Program with Dr. Falconer in 2015.
 
He will begin speaking promptly at 1.00, so plan to arrive 15 minutes prior.
 
Dr. Rogers is a board-certified neurologist and a fellowship-trained movement disorders specialist. He became a part of the Inova Medical Group with the launch of the Inova Movement Disorders Program in 2015.

Dr. Rogers specializes in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease, essential tremor, Huntington’s disease, tic disorders, dystonia, and other movement disorders, with specific training in deep brain stimulation (DBS) and botulinum toxin injections. Dr. Rogers serves as an assistant professor of neurology at the VCU School of Medicine Inova Campus.

Dr. Rogers became interested in clinical neurology while completing his PhD working with Alzheimer’s disease and frontotemporal dementia patients. He chose to focus on movement disorders because of the dramatic impact that the current pharmacological and technological treatments can have on patients’ lives. As part of the new Inova Movement Disorders Program, Dr. Rogers aspires to be part of a team that helps patients restore their quality of life.

Dr. Rogers has received two awards from Georgetown University School of Medicine, including the Thomas Auth, MD Award in Neurology, and the Barbara Bregman PhD Award in Neuroscience. He is a member of the International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society and serves on the medical advisory board for the Parkinson Foundation of the National Capital Area (PFNCA).

Dr. Rogers currently resides in Fairfax, along with his wife and two daughters, and has been a part of the Northern Virginia community for 15 years. In his free time, he enjoys playing tennis, guitar, and spending time with his family.
