Our neurologists have advanced training in neuromuscular disease and electromyography (assessing electrical activity in muscle). They have specialized knowledge in the science, clinical evaluation, or clinical management of disorders that affect cells in the central and peripheral nervous systems, muscles and the junction between them. They offer greater expertise in the origin, mechanisms, diagnosis and treatment of these disorders than general neurologists.
Our electromyographers have expertise in assessing electrical activity in muscle and nerve conduction studies. We are one of the few programs in the Northeast with several electromyographers who are expert in a specialized technique called single fiber EMG to test for myasthenia gravis.
Our neuromuscular group works together as a team that includes medical assistants, clinical nurse coordinators, an MDA coordinator, resident staff, fellows and attending physicians.
