To Assist with Surgical Planning

Carpal Tunnel Release​

  • Electrodiagnostics can quantify the degree of axonal damage to the median nerve, if present.
  • We use a validated index, with data on surgical outcomes, which helps direct decisions around decompression versus other treatment options

Ulnar Nerve Transposition

  • Electrodiagnostics can quantify the degree of axonal damage to the ulnar nerve, if present.

Nerve Transfers/Grafts

  • Electrodiagnostics can identify viable nerves appropriate for transfer/graft, as well as anatomical variants, such as a median-to-ulnar nerve contribution (Martin Gruber anastomosis)
  • Electrodiagnostics can also identify post-surgical reinnervation, ahead of clinical examination

Spinal Canal Decompression

  • Surgical decompression is best reserved for leg-dominant pain.
  • Electrodiagnostics can help quantify the degree of axonal damage, as well as establish a pattern of chronicity, i.e. acute, versus acute on chronic, etc.

Thoracic Outlet Decompression

  • Electrodiagnostics can help quantify the degree of axonal damage to nerves of the lower trunk, if present
