Meet Matthew Hastings

A native of the Kansas City area, Dr. Hastings graduated from the University of Kansas School of Medicine and completed his internship, neurology residency, neuromuscular medicine fellowship, and clinical neurophysiology fellowship at the University of Michigan Health System in Ann Arbor, Michigan before joining Saint Luke’s in 2013.

Dr. Hastings’ clinical interests include caring for patients with a range of neurological conditions with an emphasis on neuromuscular disorders including myopathies, peripheral neuropathies, motor neuron diseases such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease), and disorders of neuromuscular transmission such as myasthenia gravis.

Dr. Hastings also has an interest in the use of clinical neurophysiologic techniques in intraoperative monitoring and works closely with the surgeons of Saint Luke’s to provide high quality monitoring of nervous system structures during cardiac, orthopedic, and neurosurgical procedures. He participates in the Saint Luke’s Spine Center with colleagues from Neurosurgery, Pain Management, and Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation.

Dr. Hastings is a member of the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) and the American Association of Neuromuscular and Electrodiagnostic Medicine (AANEM).

He was awarded the Bronze Beeper in 2009 and 2011 by the medical students at the University of Michigan School of Medicine for being an outstanding resident teacher.
