Dr Andrew Mocroft is an indeoendent Consultant Clinical Neurophysiologist with a clinic at Circle Rehabilitation in Birmingham.
He has been a consultant at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, Birmingham, since 1994 and is currently the NHS trust's clinical service lead for neurophysiology.
Clinical neurophysiology is a branch of medicine a application of physiology and neuroscience that is concerned with the nervous system
Dr Mocroft has a special interest in nerve entrapment - trapped nerves - and nerve injury. Patients with nerve compression or nerve injury often report feelings of pain, which can be sharp, aching or burning, or pins and needles, or muscle weakness. Sometimes this can be due to nerve injury or nerve damage (such as nerves in the spinal cord and vertebra causing low back pain), or due to a medical condition.
Mr Mocroft performs a full range of neurophysiological procedures to investigate peripheral nerve entrapment and nerve disorders, as well as electromyography (EMG) for muscle disorders.
He has a clinical interest in the diagnosis of motor neurone disease and the use of videotelemetry in epilepsy diagnosis.
Videotelemetry combines a measure of brain activity using an electroencephalogram (EEG) which records brain wave patterns, with video to observe the patient over a period of time. These studies provide an observable correlation between brain activity and seizures.
