Comprehensive care you can count on
There are more than 100 disorders that affect the nerves and muscles—it’s crucial to get a diagnostic evaluation and a comprehensive treatment plan from experts you can trust.
What can we help you find?

A broad spectrum of expertise

It can be unsettling when you experience symptoms such as numbness, pain, burning, tingling, muscle weakness or sensitivity to touch that indicate the possibility of a nerve or muscle disorder. It's important to get a diagnostic evaluation and a comprehensive treatment plan. The Neuromuscular Center at the Northwell Health Institute for Neurology and Neurosurgery can help. It's comprised of a multidisciplinary team of numerous clinicians, including physicians, nurse practitioners, psychological care providers and rehabilitation professionals.

Nerve and muscle disorders range in severity. That's why we provide complete diagnostic evaluations that include imaging, clinical assessments supplemented by neurophysiologic testing, appropriate blood tests and, occasionally, nerve or muscle biopsies or spinal taps. When needed, we bring in other specialists and can counsel and perform genetic testing for inherited nerve and muscle conditions.
