Aim:
Diagnosing and treating patients with dizziness and balance problems due to neurological diseases

Dizziness and Balance Clinic:
Outpatients are seen in office by Dr. Hongyan Li for comprehensive evaluations that include both general neurological and neuro-otological examinations. Depending upon the clinical diagnosis, a patient may be treated during the visit or be instructed on other therapeutics and further investigative studies.  This neurology clinic is available at the UTMC main campus (Tuesday and Wednesday) and the UTP Regency Center (Monday morning). Patients with dizziness and imbalance may call in order to be assisted in scheduling appointments with Dr. Li at either of these two locations.

Vestibular Laboratory:
Neuro-otological studies are conducted by our specially trained and certified technologists at our Vestibular Laboratory located at UTMC main campus. The studies include recording and analyzing eye movements, including nystagmus, with video and electrodes (V/ENG). The information helps determine which specific part of nervous system may be affected, which assists diagnosis. Other diagnostic tests, such as auditory and vestibular evoked potentials, are also useful. When necessary, those tests can be scheduled and completed at or after an office visit. The laboratory is also open to other professionals who may request these tests for their own patients.

Vestibular and Balance Rehabilitation Service:
Our Program has close collaboration with the Vestibular and Balance Rehabilitation service of the Outpatient Physical Therapy Center at UTMC main campus. Patients are evaluated for balance and vestibular problems and specific individual treatments are designed and carried out. The service is provided by a group of therapists lead by Mary Breymaier, PT. They are certified and specially trained in helping patients with dizziness and imbalance due to a variety of neurologic and vestibular causes. After working with our therapists, many patients have improved or even recovered from their debilitating neurological conditions.
