Personalized Attention, Coordinated Teamwork

To protect our patients and staff, all people entering a BCH care facility will be required to wear a mask (exceptions include children <2 yrs. old or medical reasons such as trouble breathing, unconsciousness, or someone unable to remove a mask without assistance).
*Bandanas, neck gaiters, and masks with valves are not acceptable.

Neurology Services

Our highly-trained and experienced neurologists offer patients tremendous medical expertise combined with personal commitment to treating each patient’s emotional concerns as well as their neuromuscular, movement and seizure disorders. Our board-certified specialists use the latest evidence-based approaches to diagnose and treat a wide range of neurological disorders, including:

  • Alzheimer’s disease and Dementia
  • Concussion-related disorders
  • Migraines/Headaches
  • Stroke
  • Neuromuscular disorders (Peripheral Neuropathy, Muscular Dystrophy, etc.)
  • Parkinson’s Disease and Essential Tremor
  • Seizure disorders, including Epilepsy

Our neurologists recognize that careful listening is the cornerstone of meeting their patients’ needs. They take time to address each patient’s questions and concerns.

Neurological Tests

To diagnose possible nervous system problems, our neurologists use specialized instruments to record electrical activity in the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves. BCH offers a range of advanced neurological tests, including:

  • EEG (Electroencephalogram): This test records electrical activity of the brain to help diagnose injuries and illnesses. We also offer EEG monitoring in patients’ homes, increasing the chance of recording a seizure or other event.
  • EMG (Electromyography): Done in our clinic, this test assesses muscle and neuron health and functioning.
  • MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging): This equipment uses computer-generated radio waves and a powerful magnetic field (no radiation) to create detailed images that aid diagnosis.
  • PSG (Polysomnogram): This in-lab sleep study monitors sleep and sleep disorders.

Your doctor will order the appropriate tests.

To schedule an EMG, call 303-415-8800.
