There are a variety of diseases and disorders of the nervous system that we treat in our practice including:
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Radiculopathy and Peripheral
Our Specialized Diagnostic and Treatment Procedures include:
Electromyography/Nerve Conduction Studies (EMG)
This procedure, performed in our office, utilizes electrical stimulation of the nerves to record nerve conduction velocity and other parameters. Insertion of a very small needle into various muscles is used to record electrical activity from the muscle. This test is helpful in diagnosing a wide variety of nerve and muscle disorders.
Vagus Nerve Stimulation (VNS)
VNS therapy is used for the treatment of seizures. This involves the surgical implantation of a device similar to a cardiac pacemaker in the chest, and electrical stimulation of the vagus nerve in the neck.
Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS)
This treatment uses a surgically implanted device, similar to a pacemaker, to deliver electrical stimulation to precisely targeted areas on each side of the brain. Stimulation of these areas has been helpful in the treatment of advanced Parkinsonís, essential tremor and dystonia.
