The service uses somatosensory and motor evoked potentials (SSEP, MEP), electroencephalography (EEG), electromyography (EMG), and brainstem auditory evoked potentials (BAEP) in over 1200 cases per year at SHC and LPCH, to help minimize risk in procedures that endanger the nervous system. These include surgeries and endovascular procedures for cerebral aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), carotid stenosis, brain and spinal tumors, spinal deformities (e.g. scoliosis, spinal stenosis), peripheral nerve injury and tumors, aortic aneurysms, trigeminal neuralgia, facial dystonia, and others. He has published, presented research, and lectured at national and international meetings on IONM topics, and is active in multiple professional organizations in the field, including the American Clinical Neurophysiology Society, Society of Clinical Neurologists, and American Academy of Neurology. [2] The Stanford Spasticity Clinic: Dr. Nguyen runs the Stanford Spasticity Clinic, treating patients with multiple sclerosis, stroke, cerebral palsy, or dystonia (cervical, facial, and limb) using EMG-guided botulinum toxin injections, medications, and physical/occupational therapy. [3] The Stanford Center for Concussion and TBI: Dr. Nguyen treats patients with concussion or traumatic brain injury (TBI), both non-sports and sports related, including varsity and professional athletes. He works to educate patients, families, and the public on properly recognizing and recovering from traumatic brain injuries.
