Bingham Nerve & Muscle specializes in state-of-the-art nerve and muscle testing (electromyography or EMG/NCS). Electromyography is the standard for accurate and comprehensive evaluations of the peripheral nervous system (the “electrical system” of the body or the "wires" of the arm and leg). Patients with complaints such as pain, numbness, or tingling in the arms and legs often require an evaluation. Patients with unexplained weakness of the arms and legs often require a visit as well. This procedure is also an important method for evaluating muscle disorders. The physicians at Bingham Nerve & Muscle have devoted their careers exclusively to electromyogrpaphy and the evaluation of nerve and muscle disorders.
This narrow focus has given our staff a unique depth of experience allowing us to make an accurate diagnosis for patients. Each year several hundred providers ask us to evaluate their patients. We perform this test to assist your provider in the management of your condition. We do not manage or treat patients.
Bingham Nerve & Muscle was recently notified that it received the Electrodiagnostic (EDX) Laboratory Accreditation with Exemplary Status from AANEM. This accreditation is a voluntary, peer-review process that identifies and acknowledges EDX labo- ratories for achieving and maintaining the highest level of qual- ity, performance and integrity based on professional standards developed by AANEM.
“This prestigious accreditation shows how serious we are about this important element of patient care,” said Dr. Ron Bingham, who also is board certified in physical medicine and rehabilitation and electrodiagnostic medicine. “Our ten facilities are the first accredited laboratories in West Tennessee and the Memphis metropolitan area.”
Accreditation provides laboratories specializing in EDX medicine with a structured mechanism to assess, evaluate and improve the quality of care provided to their patients. Exemplary Status is the highest level of accreditation an EDX laboratory can achieve under the AANEM Accreditation Program.
