Dr Michell qualified from Cambridge then Oxford University medical schools and undertook neurology and subsequently, clinical neurophysiology training in Newcastle followed by Queen Square (London) and Sydney. At Addenbrooke's, he leads the Clinical Neurophysiology service, where they investigate diseases of peripheral nerve and muscle as well as interpret tests of the brain to investigate suspected epileptic seizures.
Dr Michell provides a full neuromuscular service using EMG and nerve conduction studies (no EEG or other specialist tests are available privately via Addenbrooke's). He commonly investigates patients with problems such as tingly or numb fingers, sciatica or other nerve root symptoms, and weakness suspected to be caused by nerve or muscle problems. He also performs tests to help diagnose rare diseases of the nerves and muscles. He is always happy to explain the tests performed since they are often unfamiliar to most patients and many doctors too. By understanding the investigation patients and doctors will appreciate its role in diagnosis and how it helps inform decisions about treatment.
