Russell Glantz, MD

Neurology and Electromyography

Introduction

Dr. Glantz is a board-certified neurologist at Parkview. He is responsible for conducting Electromyography (EMG) and Nerve Conduction tests, which are performed to help your physician diagnose conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome or nerve irritation in the neck or back. This is done via the placement of a thin, sterilized needle into specific muscle groups in order to electrically stimulate nerves and determine how well and how fast they are working.

Dr. Glantz received his MBBCH (Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery) Degree in 1972 from the University of Witwatersrand Medical School in Johannesburg, South Africa. He completed neurology residency training at the University of Witwatersrand, at the Charing Cross and St. Mary’s Hospitals in London, and at the Nassau County Medical Center at SUNY Stony Brook in New York. In 1980, Dr. Glantz completed a year of fellowship in Extrapyramidal disease and pharmacology at Rush-Presbyterian-St. Luke’s Medical Center in Chicago.

Dr. Glantz sees patients on a referral basis, from Parkview physicians as well as some outside physicians. If you have been referred to see Dr. Glantz, you may contact his secretary Lyn at 708-923-2568 to schedule an appointment.
