Upon graduation she joined the faculty at Stanford Neurology and Neurological Sciences, in the divisions of Neuromuscular Disorders and General Neurology. She was the first Stanford adult neurologist to establish clinics in San Pablo and Alameda and founded the Stanford Neurology Clinic in Emeryville. She continues to see patients with general neurology needs in the Neurology Residency Continuity Clinics. Dr. Sakamuri's passion is neuromuscular medicine, with a focus on peripheral nerve traumas and disorders. She is Co-Director of the Center for Peripheral Nerve Surgery along with neurosurgeon Dr. Thomas J. Wilson. She performs advanced evaluations of peripheral nerve conditions by integrating nerve and muscle ultrasound and neurophysiologic testing (EMG/NCS) at the bedside, and founded the Stanford Neuromuscular Ultrasound Program. She has advanced training in nerve and muscle ultrasound, and sits on the Neuromuscular Ultrasound Committee of the American Association of Neuromuscular and Electrodiagnostic Medicine (AANEM). She is board-certified in Neurology and Neuromuscular disorders by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN). She is certified in EMG/NCS by the American Board of Electrodiagnostic Medicine (ABEM), and also holds a Certificate of Added Qualification in Neuromuscular Ultrasound.Dr. Sakamuri's other passion is medical education. She is the Director of the Stanford Neuromuscular Medicine Fellowship and Associate Director of the Clinical Neurophysiology/EMG Fellowship. She supervises a weekly neurology resident continuity clinic and enjoys teaching sessions medical students as well as the fantastic neurology and physiatry residents and fellows. She has fond memories of her time as a clinical instructor at Jagiellonian University Medical College in Poland.
This is a study that involves collecting clinical information of subjects (patients with any neurological condition or their close family member) and tissue samples to develop a subject database and tissue bank, which will be of great value in helping the investigators learn more about various related neurological conditions. This also includes a Biobank.
This is an umbrella protocol for Myotonic Dystrophy to study various aspects of the disease including sleep abnormalities.
