Muscular Dystrophy

The Muscular Dystrophy Program provides a multidisciplinary setting for the diagnostic evaluation and follow-up care of infants and children with known or suspected neuromuscular disorders. The program is supported by the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

Clinic services include diagnostic evaluation, periodic follow-up visits and social services. Summary reports are sent to the patient’s personal physician after the initial diagnostic evaluation and after each follow-up visit. The program director is available to consult with the patient’s personal physician on problems related to the child's neuromuscular disease.
