You have been scheduled for a special test, an electromyography exam (EMG). The first part of the procedure is called a nerve conduction study (NCS) and is performed by a technician. The information from the nerve conduction study is reviewed by the physician in charge who will then proceed to perform the second part of the test called the needle EMG. All of the information gathered from these two procedures is interpreted by the physician to decide if indeed you have a problem with your nerves or muscles which is causing your symptoms.
Your doctor may be able to tell you about some of the results of your nerve studies right after the tests are completed. If you are a patient of another doctor in our clinic, it is often possible to briefly chat with your provider about what the results mean and your next step. Reports are quickly sent to referring doctors so that you can follow up with them.
