The Neurology Department at Anderson Hospital is committed to providing exceptional neurological care to our patients. Our team of skilled neurologists can provide precise diagnoses and efficient treatment for conditions and diseases affecting the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves, and muscles.

Advanced Neurological Care

Neurological Diagnostic Testing

Our neurology medical team uses advanced technologies to perform diagnostic neurological evaluations for patients experiencing brain or nervous system disorders, such as seizures, strokes, dementia, or carpal tunnel. We provide the following neurological testing in our outpatient neurology clinics.

Nerve Conduction Studies

Our neurologists routinely conduct nerve conduction studies, which is a non-invasive test that measures the velocity and speed of an electrical impulse on the nerve being tested. Nerve conduction studies are most commonly used to help diagnose:

  • Pinched/entrapped nerve
    • CTS, tarsal tunnel, and cubital tunnel
  • Neuropathy, the slowing of the nerves in general
  • Neuromuscular disorders

Electromyogram (EMG)

The neurology team performs electromyograms (EMGs), which is an invasive test where a needle is inserted into certain muscles to evaluate the electrical activity of that muscle. It records the electrical activity of the muscle while at rest and when the muscle is contracting. An EMG is typically performed to diagnose:

  • Source or cause of a muscle problem
  • Nerve damage from a compressed disc
  • Neuromuscular disorders
  • Inflammation or degeneration of peripheral nerves

Electroencephalogram (EEG)

The neurology specialists also conduct electroencephalograms (EEGs), a non-invasive procedure where tiny electrodes are placed on the patient’s head that detect the electrical impulses of the brain. Sometimes different activation procedures are performed to elicit different waveforms, such as photic stimulation and hyperventilation, depending on the health and age of the patient. EEGs are most commonly used to help diagnose:

  • Seizure disorders
  • Strokes
  • Overall health of the brain
