The Neurology Clinic aims to provide the highest level of care to patients with a focus on obtaining and maintaining satisfactory functionality for the patient.
Electromyography and Nerve Conduction Studies play a central role in the evaluation of patients with neuromuscular disorders. EMG/NCS are performed by testing the electrical activity of muscles and measure the conductivity of the nerves. These studies are most commonly used to diagnose disorders of the peripheral nervous system, in order to localize the nerve lesion, provide further information regarding the underlying nerve pathophysiology and assess the severity of the disorder. Disorders include those affecting motor neurons (e.g., amotrophic lateral sclerosis or ALS), nerve roots (e.g., sciatica), plexuses, peripheral nerves (e.g., carpal tunnel, tennis elbow), neuromuscular junctions (e.g., myasthenia gravis), and muscles (e.g., muscular dystrophy). The Institute’s outpatient clinic has the capability to perform up to 8 Electromyography and Nerve Conduction Studies (EMG/NCS) per day.
Neuroscience Institute neuropsychologists evaluate cognitive, behavioral and emotional functioning in patients with a variety of neurological conditions, including seizures, brain tumors, strokes, traumatic brain injury or dementia. They also conduct pre- and post-surgical evaluations of patients with epilepsy.
