Muscular Dystrophy Clinics
Our goal is to bring together a clinical care team to maximize independent function and minimize complication of muscular dystrophy in adults and children. Our care model involves a team of specialists to help diagnose and treat all aspects of muscular dystrophy.
There is currently no cure or treatment to halt the progression of muscular dystrophy, but there are tools to improve quality of life and maximize function. Recent research on gene and molecular therapy is also creating new possibilities. Our muscular care team will keep you abreast of the latest findings and treatments.
