Learn more about our epilepsy program.
Neuromuscular disorders affect the nerves that control your voluntary muscles - the ones you can control, like in your arms and legs. When the communication between your nervous system and muscles breaks down, your muscles weaken. The weakness can lead to twitching, cramps, aches and pains, and joint and movement problems. Sometimes it also affects heart function and your ability to breathe.
We offer special expertise and experience in diagnosing and treating patients with these disorders, which include:
Our diagnostic tests include EMG nerve conduction studies and neuromuscular ultrasound.
Stroke and neurovascular disease
Narrowing or "hardening" of the arteries, including the carotid artery in the neck, can reduce blood flow to the brain and cause a stroke. We specialize in diagnosing and managing this condition, in order to prevent stroke, as well as helping patients who have had a stroke recover. Learn more about our stroke program.
