Neuromuscular Disease Program
The Neuromuscular Disorders Division of Thomas Jefferson University Hospital offers quality clinical expertise and laboratory studies for diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular diseases.
Fellows and residents learn quantitative techniques including nerve conduction studies, repetitive nerve stimulation, needle EMG with quantitative motor unit analysis, and review nerve and muscle biopsies in selected cases. Special emphasis is placed on developing expertise in electromyography and nerve conduction studies. The fellows become highly trained in the diagnosis and treatment of peripheral neuropathies, neuromuscular junction disorders, myopathies, and motor neuron diseases. Neuromuscular and EMG conferences are held biweekly.
