An international figure in neuromuscular disease, Dr. Oh, Distinguished Professor of Neurology, Professor of Pathology, and Director of UAB's Clinical Neurophysiology and Muscle/Nerve Histopathology Laboratories has a long list of publications and has authored several textbooks that have become standard reference books for electromyography laboratories all over the world. His textbook published in 2001, the Color Atlas of Nerve Biopsy Pathology, contains more than 300 photographs, micrographs, and line drawings, including some 260 color illustrations. The atlas offers a clear picture of commonly used techniques for nerve biopsies. It also features new diagnostic techniques and clinicopathological correlations, all in a framework designed for quick reference and easy learning. This work is based on his personal experience with 2,500 nerve biopsies collected during the past 30 years at UAB.
