Treating neuromuscular diseases such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), peripheral nerve injury, myasthenia gravis and myopathies requires a unique combination of medical expertise and compassion. Specialists in the Neuromuscular Center successfully achieve this blend and strive to apply the latest technology to help patients optimize their quality of life and minimize their disability.
To assist in the accurate diagnosis of these disorders, our specialists rely on diagnostic modalities such as electrodiagnosis (e.g. EMG); autonomic testing; and muscle, nerve and skin biopsies to supplement the history and physical evaluation.
