Nationally recognized subspecialists treat a wide range of neurological disorders including — but not limited to — Parkinson’s disease, essential tremor, ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease), Alzheimer’s disease, ataxia, dystonia, muscular dystrophy, neuropathy, sleep disorders, epilepsy, stroke, and multiple sclerosis.

Our Approach

For patients with Parkinson’s disease, essential tremor, dystonia, and seizure disorders who are candidates for deep brain stimulation (DBS) our specialists team up with highly skilled neurosurgeons to ensure optimal outcomes. Our genetic counselors study how inherited genes influence the risk of developing specific neurological disorders and help to determine optimal treatments for neurodegenerative disorders in both adults and children.

M Health Fairview neurologists have also implemented Telestroke technology at Fairview Southdale Hospital in partnership with Fairview Health Services. Using emergency room video conferencing, Telestroke technology allows stroke specialists to rapidly evaluate patients, review the results of brain imaging tests conducted in a patient’s local emergency department, and coordinate treatment even when the patient and other doctors are miles apart. Doctors have the ability to manipulate the camera position remotely—which helps when examining patients and diagnosing stroke symptoms—and can review the results of brain-imaging tests conducted in the local emergency department.

Conditions We Treat

Treatments, Tests, and Procedures

Continuous Video Electroencephalogram (EEG)

A continuous video electroelcephalogram (EEG) studies your brain activity longer than a standard EEG and correlates brain electrical activity with clinical activity. It's used to help determine the cause of seizures and more.

Corpus Callostomy

Corpus callostomy is a surgical procedure for the treatment of seizures. If you have frequent disabling seizures that cannot be reliably controlled with medications, surgery may be an option for regaining your quality of life.

Concussion Evaluation and Management

A severe fall or a blow to the head severe enough to shake or injure the brain can result in a concussion. Most concussions are mild, and people recover fully. However, any brain injury from a concussion must heal properly before you put yourself at risk of another.

Upper Airway Stimulation Treatment (Inspire Therapy)

Inspire therapy is for people with moderate to severe obstructive sleep apnea who are not receiving consistent benefits from CPAP devices. Before your physician recommends Inspire therapy, you will be asked to participate in a sleep study.

Lesionectomy

A lesionectomy is a common surgical procedure to remove a lesion, or abnormality, in the brain. Lesions may include congenital malformations, tumors, brain injuries, stroke or other conditions that cause epilepsy and seizure disorders.

DaTscan Imaging

DaTscan is a contrast agent used with single-photo emission computed tomography (SPECT) to improve the ability to diagnose parkinsonian syndromes and essential tremor.

Selective Amygdalohippocampectomy

One surgical procedure for the treatment of temporal lobe epilepsy is SAH. This is an alternative to the most common surgery to treat seizures in adults, anterior temporal lobectomy. With selective amygdalohippocampectomy, neurosurgeons remove parts of the amygdala and most of the hippocampus.

Neuromuscular Ultrasound

Neuromuscular ultrasound is an imaging test which is complementary to the electromyography (EMG) and nerve conduction studies (NCS) and allows your physician to directly visualize your nerves and muscles.

Vagus Nerve Stimulation

A small pulse generator similar to a pacemaker is implanted under the skin of your chest and connected to a wire that is attached to your vagus nerve. The device delivers mild electrical signals along the nerve, which then sends signals to other areas of the brain to interrupt the seizure.

Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS)

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a FDA approved treatment for patients suffering from depression who have not achieved satisfactory improvement with standardized treatment. TMS is a noninvasive therapy that uses electromagnetic energy to activate your brain cells.

Electromyography (EMG) and Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS)

EMG and NCS are diagnostic tests that help your physician evaluate the function of your peripheral nerves and the electrical activity generated by your muscles. Those tests might be prescribed if you have tingling, numbness, weakness, muscle cramping or pain.

Deep Brain Stimulation

Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a surgical procedure in which electrodes are placed on your brain and connected to a pulse generator, which sends signals to block abnormal brain signals that are causing your symptoms. DBS can be extremely helpful in reducing debilitating symptoms.

Biopsy

A biopsy is a procedure to remove tissue in order to test it for cancer. The cells can be removed in several ways and then analyzed in a laboratory.

Responsive Neurostimulator (RNS)

If you are continuing to experience seizures, despite anti-seizure medications, you may be a candidate for a responsive neurostimulator (RNS). This device is for individuals with focal or partial onset seizures where the area of the brain causing seizures cannot be removed.
