Special expertise

Childrens' neurology

Our pediatric neurologists diagnose and treat children for neurological symptoms and conditions at Randall Children's Hospital.

Epilepsy and seizure disorders can be complex to diagnose and treat. We offer special expertise and the latest treatments for epilepsy, including ongoing research, medication management, EEG, and the only inpatient epilepsy monitoring unit in Southwest Washington. Learn more about our epilepsy program.

Neuromuscular disorders

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:

  • Muscular dystrophy
  • ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig's Disease)
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Myasthenia gravis

 

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.
