Jordi Serra, MD, Neurology & Clinical Neurophysiology

Since 2014, Dr. Serra has been a Consultant in Clinical Neurophysiology at King’s College Hospital, London. Jordi Serra received his medical degree in 1988 from the University of Barcelona and completed his Neurology specialty in 1992 in Barcelona. He spent the following years (1992 – 1995) as a Neuromuscular Fellow at the Neuromuscular Unit, Good Samaritan Hospital and Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland, Oregon, USA, where he specialized in the study, diagnosis, and treatment of neuropathic pain patients.

During this period, he was trained in the technique of microneurography. Microneurography offers an unrivaled tool to study spontaneous pain in humans by producing objective records of the abnormal nerve impulse activity responsible for paresthesia (myelinated fibers) and spontaneous pain (unmyelinated fibers). This is the only available technique to detect and quantify positive sensory phenomena of peripheral nerve origin in humans by recording individual action potentials from single sensory fibers.

Dr. Serra’s expertise also lies in the areas of electromyography, nerve conduction studies, evoked potentials, quantitative sensory testing, thermography, and intraoperative electrophysiological monitoring.
