EMG Laboratory Attains Prestigious National Accreditation for Clinical Excellence in Neuromuscular Diagnosis
Date:8/3/2011

HYANNIS and LAWRENCE, Mass., Aug. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- EMG Laboratory, a state-of-the-art facility for electrodiagnostic medicine, was awarded the American Association of Neuromuscular & Electrodiagnostic Medicine's (AANEM) highest level of recognition, Accreditation with Exemplary Status. EMG Laboratory has provided advanced testing of nerves and muscles to communities in and around Merrimack Valley and Cape Cod since 1997. Currently, it is the first and only electrodiagnostic laboratory with such accreditation to serve these communities.

Led by Drasko Simovic, M.D., EMG Laboratory is one of only 17 EMG laboratories nationwide to achieve the AANEM's peer-reviewed accreditation for high-quality performance, integrity and patient care, exceeding a rigorous set of measures of excellence.

"This accreditation validates the quality of Dr. Simovic's work as superior," said Allan H. Ropper, M.D., Executive Vice Chairman, Department of Neurology, Brigham and Woman's Hospital, Harvard Medical School. "He's a dedicated and highly qualified specialist with a strong commitment to electrophysiology and to the patients he treats. He's thoughtful about how he conducts studies, tailors the study logically, and provides referring physicians diagnoses with certainty. Such certainty is important. It helps referring physicians make well-informed decisions about a clear course of patient treatment."

Dr. Simovic uses techniques from major U.S. academic centers. He completed Boston University's Affiliated Hospitals Residency Program in Neurology and two fellowships in electrodiagnostic medicine and clinical neurophysiology at St. Elizabeth's Medical Center, Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston, MA.

He is one of the few Boston-area specialists Board Certified in four specialties: Neurology (ABPN), Electrodiagnostic Medicine (ABEM), Clinical Neurophysiology (ABPN-CN), and Disability Analysis (ABDA). An Assistant Professor of Neurology at Tufts University's School of Medicine, Dr. Simovic has co-authored ground-breaking research in gene therapy and diabetic neuropathy and published research in novel electrodiagnostic techniques.

"We are pleased to receive this accreditation and recognition from the AANEM," said Dr. Simovic. "Electrodiagnostic medicine is my passion. I receive gratification in my daily work by helping patients along the path of wellness and establishing correct diagnoses. Once we know the name of our 'medical enemy,' it's much easier for physicians to use the appropriate therapeutic tools. My dedication to providing test results to referring physicians on the same day the test is conducted helps doctors provide the best care to their patients."

Electrodiagnostic medicine helps diagnose conditions with symptoms including pain, numbness, tingling and/or weakness from problems such as carpal tunnel syndrome, neuropathy, pinched nerves, and low back and neck pain to complex diseases such as muscular dystrophy and Lou Gehrig's Disease.
