At Mercy Clinic Neurology - Whiteside, in Springfield, MO, we evaluate and treat patients with neurological disorders of the central and peripheral nervous systems. Our neurologists provide stroke treatment, consultations and ongoing care and diagnostic services that identify, characterize and treat neurological problems like epilepsy and seizure disorders, stroke, movement disorder (Parkinson’s disease, tremor), dementia, multiple sclerosis, headaches, neuromuscular diseases (neuropathy, myasthenia gravis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, muscular dystrophy). We also perform and interpret nerve conduction and EMG study, interpret EEG result, manage vagal nerve stimulator for epilepsy and deep brain stimulator for Parkinson and tremor.
