Overview

Our neuromuscular clinic evaluates and treats infants, children, teens and young adults with progressive muscle weakness and loss of muscle tissue.

The most common forms we treat are Duchenne’s, Becker’s and limb-girdle muscular dystrophies. We also treat other neuromuscular disorders, such as Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease and spinal muscular atrophy.

We provide treatments that address the underlying disease and other medical concerns associated with your child’s disorder. If necessary, our team will evaluate patients for therapy, bracing and equipment.

Our goal is to help patients and families live as normal, productive lives as possible.
