More than two million Americans suffer from conditions that affect the muscles, nerves, or a combination of both (which we refer to as “neuromuscular.”) Conditions you might be familiar with that fall into the neuromuscular category include peripheral neuropathy and ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease.
Our specialists have the expertise to treat those conditions and more, including:
Our neuromuscular specialists are dedicated to compassionate and comprehensive care, using the latest technology for diagnosis. We carefully gather patient histories, conduct in-depth physical examinations and perform additional studies that can include blood work and an electromyography and nerve conduction study (EMG/NCS) for initial functional testing of nerves and muscles. We offer specialized nerve function testing, including QSART, which is small fiber and autonomic neuropathy testing
Information obtained from these tests leads to accurate neuromuscular disease diagnosis and prognosis reporting, resulting in the development of a personalized treatment plan.
Our experts work with skill, care and compassion to determine the underlying cause and to help alleviate neuromuscular symptoms by using the broadest range of medications and therapies available. We keep abreast of the most advanced treatment options to improve quality of life and at times reverse or cure the underlying disease. Our neuromuscular team uses a comprehensive multidisciplinary approach, and consists of the neurologist working when necessary with rheumatologists, endocrinologists, neurosurgeons, hand surgeons, physical and occupational therapists, respiratory therapists, speech therapists, neurodiagnostic technicians, and even genetic counselors. We also have a dedicated infusion center that offers IVIG, biologics and plasma exchange.
