DC Neurology Services
Our medical team provides comprehensive evaluation of patients with disorders of the peripheral nerves, muscles and the neuromuscular junction. We have neurologists that specialize in peripheral neuropathy, myopathies, Lou Gehrig’s disease (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) and myasthenia gravis. These specialists are internationally recognized for their expertise in diagnosis and management of these complex diseases of the muscles.
Advanced diagnostic strategies are critical in treatment planning for neuromuscular disorders. Laboratory tests include electromyography (EMG), Single Fiber-EMG, as well as routine and advanced nerve conduction studies. Muscle and skin biopsies are also performed to enhance the specificity of our diagnoses.
