ForeFront Neurology

The ForeFront Neurology clinic offers diagnostic assessment for patients and multidisciplinary symptom management. Our diagnostic team are able to perform electrodiagnostic studies including electromyography and nerve conduction studies, as well as novel procedures such as nerve and muscle ultrasound, peripheral nerve excitability and transcranial magnetic stimulation, the latter used to study brain function. Our multidisciplinary clinic incorporates a team of Neurologists, Clinical Nurse Specialist, Clinical Neuropsychologists, Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Respiratory physician, Respiratory physiotherapists, Gastroenterology and a Neurology Clinical Coordinator.
