Welcome to our website.

 

 

We would like to inform you about the services offered by our Neurology office and Neurophysiology Lab

to give you the opportunity to see, whether we can meet your highest standards in dealing with the health problem you have.

We believe in a personalized approach to each patient and treat the problem with sensitivity and responsibility.

 

Nowadays, the advances in the field of Neurology become our specialty, from a purely diagnostic who was for many years, to a therapeutic with effective therapies.

 

You have the opportunity to contact us

by phone, e-mail or via our website.

Professor of Neurology
& Clinical Neurophysiology,
Dr. George Amoiridis
 
provides in his office complete clinical examination and treatments for the full spectrum of neurological diseases, and a plurality of neurophysiological examinations.
Polyneuropathy
Polyneuropathy represents a condition of extensive involvement
of peripheral nerves by various causes. About 3% of the population over 55 years will be affected by a polyneuropathy.
Great is the contribution of nerve conduction studies and electromyography (EMG) in the differential diagnosis
of polyneuropathies. 
Symptoms of polyneuropathies:
  • Numbness and pain (usually "burning") of feet and legs, particularly at rest and at night.
  • Reduced muscle strength particularly of limbs and especially the legs.
  • Sweating disorders (increased or decreased sweating of soles and palms).
  • Restless legs.
  • Reduced or eliminated tendon reflexes.
Myopathies and Myasthenic syndromes
 
  • Absence of skin sensory disturbances.
  • Delayed relaxation of a contracted muscle (myotonia)Deterioration of the weakness during the day (myasthenia gravis).
  • Improving muscle strength immediately after exercise (myasthenic Lambert-Eaton syndrome).
  • Sometimes muscle pseudo-hypertrophy (legs).
  • Muscle pain (in myositis and metabolic myopathies).
Symptoms:
 
  • Muscle weakness.
  • Muscle atrophy, usually in the proximal parts of the limbs
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS)
CTS is a very common condition
(up to 2.7% of the population).
 
Confirmation of its diagnosis is done by
nerve conduction studies and sometimes by electromyography.
CTS symptoms:
 
  • Numbness, tingling and pain of fingers and hand, sometimes extended to the arm and shoulder, especially at night.
  • Worsening of symptoms with manual work.
  • Subjective hand swelling and stiffness.
  • Clumsiness when grasping objects, often dropping things off hands.
  • Thumb atrophy.
Headaches - Facial pain - Investigation and Treatment:
 
  • Migraine
  • Tension headaches
  • Cluster headaches
  • Trigeminal neuralgia
  • Headaches with autonomic involvement 
Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
 
Clinical and Laboratory Investigation of patient with probable MS (visual, auditory and somatosensory evoked potentials).
MS patient monitoring and disease treatment.
Symptoms:
 
  • Memory disorder, originally concerning
      recent events.
  • Attention difficulty.
  • Disordered orientation at a place and time (eg can be lost on familiar environment or does not know the present day, month and year).
  • Difficulty in simple arithmetic calculations.
  • Behavioral disorders, eg aggression or apathy.
  • Failure to recognize familiar persons.
Dementia - Alzheimer's Disease 

In our neurophysiological laboratory we perform many specialized neurophysiological tests such as:

 

 

  • Nerve conduction studies as well as F wave and Hoffman reflex studies.

  • Electromyography.

  • Nuromuscular junction function studies (presynaptic Lambert-Eaton, postsynaptic Desmedt).

  • Blink reflex to investigate trigeminal and facial nerve, as well as brain stem, function.

  • Visual evoked potentials (VEP, potentials of the occipital lobe) to test the function of the optic nerve.

  • Brain stem auditory evoked potentials (BAEP) for auditory nerve and brain stem function testing.

  • Somatosensory evoked potentials (SEP) to investigate peripheral and central sensory pathways.

  • Entrapment neuropathies.
  • Traumatic peripheral nerve lesions.
  • Large and small fiber neuropathies.
  • Radiculopathies.
  • Disorders of neuromuscular junction.
  • Myopathies.
  • Unclear motor or sensory function deficit.
