  • Pediatric Neurology provides care for children with meningitis, encephalitis, epilepsy, brain tumors, central nervous system infections, and other neurologic conditions. Our pediatric neurologist also provides care for infants and children who have suffered a traumatic brain injury.
  • EMG Laboratory - An EMG (electromyography) can help detect abnormalities in muscles and nerve cells that control them. An EMG may consist of a nerve conduction study. HCMC's Botulinum Toxin Program treats neurological problems such as migraines and has uses as a treatment for certain muscular disorders. Our EMG lab is the only location in the Twin Cities that offers autonomic testing which is a non-invasive series of procedures that help identify dysfunction in the autonomic system, which controls involuntary functions like heart rate or blood pressure.
