Diagnosis and Treatments

Neurological diseases and disorders are vast and complex. Our neurologists conduct a wide range of diagnostic procedures including:

An electroencephalogram, or EEG, is one of the key tests used to diagnose nervous system conditions, especially epilepsy.

Electromyography (EMG) is a diagnostic technique used in identifying and characterizing neurological disorders affecting the nerve roots, peripheral nerves, neuromuscular junction, and muscles.

A nerve conduction study (NCS), also called a nerve conduction velocity (NCV) test, is a measurement of the speed of conduction of an electrical impulse through a nerve. NCS can determine nerve damage and destruction. During the test, the nerve is stimulated, usually with surface electrode patches attached to the skin.
