Division of Clinical Neurophysiology
The Division of Clinical Neurophysiology, part of NYU Langone Health, provides a broad range of diagnostic services to people with neurological disorders. We are dedicated to providing exceptional patient care through evaluation, monitoring, and treatment of disorders that affect the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves, and muscles, using a combination of clinical assessment and neurophysiological testing.
We also conduct neurophysiology research and are committed to training future neurophysiologists through our clinical neurophysiology fellowship training program.
Our goal is to provide the highest-quality diagnostic testing to patients and referring physicians. Our services include nerve conduction studies; electromyography (EMG); facial EMG; rectal–sphincter EMG; auditory brainstem, somatosensory, and visual evoked potential (EP) studies; single-fiber EMG; neuromuscular junction testing; orbicularis oculi (blink) reflex; and bulbocavernosus reflex.
Our experts specialize in the diagnosis and care of children and adults with the following conditions:
- motor neuron disease
- muscular dystrophy
- nerve compression and entrapment syndromes
- neuromuscular junction transmission dysfunctions
- spinal muscular atrophy
- spinal stenosis
Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring
In the operating room, our physicians and technologists work closely with surgeons, providing patient protection and real-time feedback throughout surgical procedures. Our intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring service strives to provide the best of patient care and safety.
Each year, our team monitors thousands of procedures involving the central and peripheral nervous systems to avoid preventable complications. These include anterior or posterior cervical decompression and fusion; anterior or posterior lumbar spinal fusion; scoliosis deformity correction; surgery for brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerve tumors; carotid endarterectomy; epilepsy surgery; tethered cord release; selective rhizotomy for spasticity; and implantation of spinal cord stimulators.
Modalities we commonly use include studies of somatosensory EPs (SEPs), motor EPs, corticospinal motor EPs (D wave), auditory brainstem EPs, cortical phase reversal, functional cortical mapping, free-running EMG, triggered EMG, and facial lateral spread.
The Division of Clinical Neurophysiology is led by Aleksandar Beric, MD, division director.
Our Clinical Neurophysiology Laboratory provides neurodiagnostic services at locations on the east side of Manhattan at NYU Langone’s Tisch Hospital, NYU Langone Orthopedic Hospital, NYU Langone Orthopedic Center, and NYU Langone Ambulatory Care Center East 38th Street.
