Neuromuscular and Nerve Disorders

Neuromuscular and nerve disorders can affect the peripheral nervous system. The nervous system is a complex, sophisticated system that regulates and coordinates the body’s activities. Symptoms can vary from mild to critical, and include pain, muscle weakness, numbness, cramping, lightheadedness, tremors or muscle rigidity. Sentara has a comprehensive team ready to diagnosis and treat a variety of conditions that affect the nervous system including the ability to perform functional neurosurgery for epilepsy and tremor disorders, such as Parkinson’s.  Functional and restorative surgical options include Vagus Nerve Stimulation (VNS), Laser interstitial thermal therapy (LITT), and Deep Brain Stimulation.
