Robert A. Lillo, M.D., provides electrodiagnostic services at our Central Indiana Orthopedics Muncie and Anderson Offices.
Electrodiagnostic medicine consultation evaluates nerve and muscle function and is a direct extension of the clinical neuromuscular examination. The electrodiagnostic medicine consultation provides helpful information in the evaluation of the motor and sensory neurons, the nerve roots, the brachial and lumbar plexi, the peripheral nerves, the neuromuscular junction, and the muscles.
Some of the common problems in which the electrodiagnostic medicine consultation can be especially helpful include carpal tunnel syndrome, ulnar palsy, footdrop, polyneuropathy, and radiculopathy in the cervical and lumbar regions. Weakness can be evaluated to identify specific etiologies, such as motor neuron disease, neuropathy, myopathy, and myasthenia gravis.
