The research of Ruple S. Laughlin, M.D., includes involvement in clinically based projects in neuropathy, as well as the usage of electromyography (EMG) in neurological diseases.
- Post-surgical neuropathies
- Inflammatory neuropathies
- EMG and nerve conduction studies in clinical care
- Neurological education
Significance to patient care
The goal of Dr. Laughlin's research is to more clearly identify patients who might benefit from immune therapy in various neuromuscular diseases, as well as enhance EMG and nerve conduction studies to better identify such patients.
