Neurologists are responsible for the diagnosis, treatment and management of all the conditions that affect the nervous system. Please see below for a look at the neurological disorders we treat and tests & procedures we offer and frequently use.
DCND has been recognized by the National MS Society as a comprehensive care center for MS. We have a proven commitment to provide exceptional and coordinated MS care.
Alzheimer's & Dementia
Dementia is memory loss that interferes with daily life. DCND has nationally recognized doctors for Alzheimer’s and memory disorders who are very knowledgeable on the current studies and treatments avaialble.
Headache & Migraine
Chronic migraines can be debilitating and greatly impact the quality of your life. DCND sees many patients dealing with headaches and migraines that re-occur often. There are many different treatment options avaialble.
DCND has highly-qualified neurologists who specialize in sleep medicine. They diagnose and treat a variety of issues including Insomnia, Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS), and Sleep Apnea. Our neurologists work closely with Kettering Health Network’s sleep centers.
Parkinson's & Movement Disorders
There are many kinds of movement disorders that can impact a patients balance, coordination, speech and overall movement. They can range from tremors to over-active or under-active muscles.
Our neurologists cover stroke care at several area hospitals.
A stroke is caused by a lack of oxygen to the brain usually triggered by a blocked or ruptured blood vessel. Time is a critical part of stroke care.
Traumatic brain injuries are caused by a bump, jolt or blow to the head. They can cause of variety of issues including headaches, memory problems, concentration issues as well as impacting your balance or coordination.
Epilepsy & Seizure Disorders
Neurological rehabilitation is an important part of our practice at DCND. Our Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation (PM&R) providers help our patients live more active and productive lives after a neurological injury/disability.
ALS or Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis is an incurable neurodegenerative disease that causes motor neurons to die in the brain and spinal cord resulting in a loss of muscle control throughout the body.
Tests & Procedures
A Sleep Study is used to confirm a sleep disorder diagnosis. This test will document the electrical activities of the brain, muscles, eyes and heart while in a sleep state.
Botulinum Toxins Injections
Botulinum toxins are injected by a physician for various conditions including dystonia, spasticity and refractory headaches. This procedure is done in our office.
An Electroencephalogram (EEG) and Ambulatory Electroencephalogram (AEEG) are tests used to detect problems in the electrical activity of the brain cells
A Lumbar Puncture (LP) is a procedure that is performed by a physician to aid in the diagnosis of certain medical conditions. The physician will collect a sampling of the fluid that surrounds the brain and spinal cord for analysis.
An Electromyography (EMG) is a diagnostic test used to measure the electrical activity between the nerve and muscle. This test can evaluate for possible injury to the nerves and muscles by stimulating the nerve and recording how each nerve conducts a signal.
An Evoked Potential (EP) test records the electrical activity from the brain, spinal nerves or sensory receptors in response to a specific external stimulation.
Cognitive tests are assessments providers use to help evaluate cognitive impairment associated with multiple neurological problems. We look at memory, problem solving, language and several other aspects during the testing.
Occipital Nerve Block
Occipital Nerve Block is an injection that can help reduce the inflammation and swelling of the tissue around the occipital nerves.
A Sphenopalatine ganglion block (SPG) is a procedure that can help reduce pain in the head and face through the use of a numbing injection to nerves in the face.
The Computed Tomography (CT) is a computer that converts two-dimensional x-ray cross-sectional images into three-dimensional slices of internal organs and soft tissue. This test is done at the hospital.
Autonomic Nervous System Test
An Autonomic Nervous System Test evaluates the physiologic response to a number of different stimuli. It helps narrow down the part of the nervous system having problems.
Deep Brain Stimulation
DBS or Deep Brain Stimulation is a surgical procedure done to treat disabling neurological symptoms.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) uses radio waves and a magnetic field to create images of the soft tissues and bones. A MRI assists the physician in diagnosing and treating many medical conditions. These tests are done at the hospital.
DCND provides IV infusion treatment on site for Multiple Sclerosis & Headaches. Our infusion suite is located at our Beavercreek office.
It is very important to your treatment that all lab work is completed prior to your appointment.
