Our neuromuscular center is attached to the Department of Neurology, in a tertiary Public University Hospital. It is the only public unit for neurological patients in the south-west of Greece with a total population of about 800.000 people. Approximately 420 patients with a diagnosis of neuromuscular disorder, including myopathies, neuropathies, neuromuscular junction disorders and motor neuron diseases are followed up in our department. These patients are managed by a multidisciplinary team, including neurologist, cardiologist, pulmonologist, physiatrist, nutritionist, psychologists, respiratory and motor therapists, speech therapists, dietician, and nurses.  Our team provides comprehensive services in the areas of diagnosis, conventional drug treatments and experimental treatment protocols, as well as research on these disorders, including clinical trials. Our neurologists offer a complete range of diagnostic testing that include electrodiagnostic studies (EMG, ENG, RNS, SF-EMG, autonomic function testing) and neuromuscular ultrasound. We collaborate with other labs for genetic analysis, autoimmune assays and muscle biopsies.
