Peripheral neuropathy and nerve trauma, Peripheral neurophysiology and electromyography
My clinical research has been primarily in the area of autoimmune mediated neuropathies, hereditary neuropathies, myasthenia gravis and in the treatment of pain in diabetic neuropathy. My practice is 50% involved in the neurophysiologic diagnosis of neuromuscular diseases and 50% in the treatment of autoimmune neuromuscular diseases. I follow over 300 patients with neuromuscular diseases on immunosuppressants.
