Benn E. Smith, M.D., has spent his clinical and research career focused on disorders of the peripheral nerve and neuromuscular system. His areas of study include clinical neurophysiology — studies of how the peripheral neuromuscular system can be investigated to diagnose, treat and follow individuals with neuromuscular disorders. Dr. Smith's research incorporates natural history studies, standard values studies and the exploration of novel neurophysiological techniques. Using these tools, Dr. Smith hopes to provide new information regarding the health and detection of diseases of nerve, muscle and neuromuscular junction.
Each of Dr. Smith's research focus areas directly impacts patient care. The first four guide evaluation strategies used in the neuromuscular clinic to provide patients with the most up-to-date and state-of-the-art strategies for diagnosing and managing their neuromuscular disorders. The final focus helps determine with crystal clarity the normal values used every day in the Mayo Clinic neurophysiology laboratories to precisely define when an abnormality is present and provide information about its nature and severity.
Dr. Smith is involved in several neurology-related leadership positions nationwide.
