Do you know that music is an excellent treatment for neurological diseases?
Hence the importance of specialized clinics such as the Neurophysiology Unit at Médica Sur Tlalpan in México City, México, which is responsible for studies to identify diseases of the central and peripheral nervous system, including neuromuscular ailments.
This unit is composed of administrative and technical staff, as well as a select group of certified neurologists and neurophysiologists. Always willing to look after your health.
Our range of services includes Digital Electroencephalography, which studies electrical brain activity through a digital analysis of ailments such as epilepsy, paroxysmal ailments or abnormal movements, Brain mapping; which allows to perform a statistical analysis of the electrical brain frequencies with graphic representation, depending on their amplitude and duration, as well as the application of Evoked Potencials; with the difference that the latter analyzes: visual, auditory and somatosensory pathways.
Videoelectroencephalography, is of great benefit to identify true epileptic seizures, non-epileptic seizures, abnormal movements, etc. As for the EMG and nerve conduction, the first one examines muscle activity by introducing needle electrodes in specific muscles, and the latter, monitors the sensory and motor responses of peripheral nerves using electrical stimulation, to grade the reaction speed.
Trans-operative Monitoring, is used to determine the location, type and severity of a neurologic injury, providing valuable information to the surgeon, who determines the best procedure to follow to prevent future complications, and therapeutic tool called Application of Botulinum Toxin, is used to determine the different types of involuntary movements, which require an accurate identification of which muscles require treatment.
EEG, brain mapping, electroencephalography, visual evoked potentials, auditory evoked early and late lactation, somato sensory evoked potentials, nerve conduction (conduction velocities) and electromyography, neurophysiological monitoring transsurgical, botulinum toxin (botox) using electromyographic guidance, registration polysomnography and CPAP.
