Electromyography and nerve conduction studies:
This EMG test is useful for assessing the function and health of nerves and muscles. Disorders evaluated include carpal tunnel syndrome, pinched nerves from the spine, myasthenia gravis, peripheral neuropathies, and ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis).
We use computerized testing to assess patients’ cognitive abilities. This type of testing is useful to evaluate for dementia, mild cognitive impairment, traumatic brain injuries, attention deficit disorder, or for medication effects.
Nerve blocks/trigger point:
Useful for headaches (i.e. migraines, post-traumatic headaches), chronic neck pain, occipital neuralgia, and muscles spasms.
Lumbar Puncture (or Spinal Tap):
Mainly a diagnostic test, we gather cerebrospinal fluid to investigate infection and inflammation of the brain and spinal cord. We can also measure pressure, which can be used to diagnose intracranial hypertension (pseudotumor cerebri) or hypotension.
A diagnostic test used for detecting small-fiber neuropathies, which can often be missed by standard electrodiagnostic tests.
Botulinum Toxin Injections:
Useful for spasticity and pain, drooling and abnormal sweating, and various neurologic movement disorders, i.e. blepharospasm, chronic migraine, focal upper-extremity dystonia, upper-extremity essential tremor, hemifacial spasm, focal lower-limb dystonia, and motor tics.
The EEG is a non-invasive recording of electrical activity along the scalp produced by the firing of brain cells. We use this test to evaluate for seizure disorders.

Clinical research is the process that tests new products such as drugs, devices and biologics, in humans. The goal is to obtain approval by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and make the product available to everyone, incorporating it into medical "standards of care."
