Tests & Treatments

  • CT Scan
    A series of X-rays that can be used to visualize nearly all parts of the body in 3-D is known as a CT scan.

  • Deep Brain Stimulation
    The purpose of DBS is to deliver controlled electrical signals to precisely targeted areas of the brain through a tiny, implanted wire with electrodes attached.

  • MRI
    Our specialists often use advanced MRI technology to obtain visual detail of organs and tissues to help detect many conditions.

  • Nerve Conduction Velocity
    If you are experiencing numbness, tingling and/or burning sensations in your legs or arms, your physician may order a nerve conduction velocity test to determine if nerve damage has occurred.

  • Neuropsychological Tests
    These tests can acquire information about a patient's cognitive, motor, behavioral, linguistic and executive functioning and lead to the diagnosis of a cognitive deficit.

  • Spinal Cord Stimulation & Pumps
    For patients who have experienced a spinal cord injury or who have multiple sclerosis, spinal cord stimulation can be performed.
