About Me

As a neuromuscular specialist, I treat patients with neuromuscular disorders. Patients come to see me for symptoms such as muscle weakness, numbness, tingling or neuropathies and for treatment of motor neuron disorders like ALS.

I chose neuromuscular disorders as a specialty because it’s one of the more challenging areas within neurology in terms of diagnosis and treatment. Most neuromuscular conditions are genetic and that fascinated me as well.

My approach to patient care is to not miss anything that’s treatable. It’s critical to find out exactly what the patients’ diagnoses are and provide the appropriate treatment. Each patient is unique and has particular needs in terms of his or her evaluation and testing. I try to identify subtle differences in how patients present or how they look and take clues from what they have to say when making a specific diagnosis. There are times however where treatments might not be available for a patient. In these cases it’s my job to provide hope and support.

The most rewarding part about my job is diagnosing and treating an undiagnosed condition that has affected someone for years. People who come here are happy to finally have a name for their disease.

Consulting and Related Relationships

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.

As of 03/26/2018, Dr. Iyadurai has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
