In addition, a variety of radiologic and surgical therapies are available. Included within the Division is the Electroencephalograms Laboratory, which provides the following diagnostic services:
Electromyograms (EMG) for the evaluation peripheral nerve disorders and neuromuscular disorders, and
Evoked potentials for the evaluation of a variety of nervous system disorders. All exams are interpreted by board-certified physicians who work with the patient’s primary care physician or other providers to help develop a quality care plan.
