Description of Clinical Expertise

I continue to be fascinated by all subspecialties of neurology. For this reason, I enjoy seeing general neurology patients, especially disorders of the spinal cord. Following my residency training, I completed a neuromuscular fellowship here at the University of Pennsylvania and obtained certification from the Amerian Board of Psychiatry and Neurology in neuromuscular medicine. Thus, I have additional expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the peripheral nervous system, such as radiculopathy, mononeuropathies, polyneuropathy, myopathy, motor neuron disease and disorders of neuromuscular junction transmission. I have published articles on polyneuropathy following gastric bypass surgery, neuromyotonia, POEMS syndrome, and reviews of peripheral neuropathy. I am also certified by the American Association of Neuromuscular and Electrodiagnostic Medicine in electromyography, which I perform weekly. For the last 2 years, I have been a member of the winning Neurobowl team at the American Academy of Neurology national meeting, which is a competition assessing the ability of the participants to rapidly and accurately diagnose uncommon neurologic diseases.
