Neuromuscular Disease

The Neuromuscular Disorders Clinic specializes in the evaluation and the newest treatment of the entire spectrum of neuromuscular disorders. The program deals with the diagnosis and treatment of nerve, plexus and spinal root injuries and their complications. We also treat injuries or illnesses of the peripheral autonomic nervous systems, such as familial dysautonomia.

Patients are usually referred through their primary care provider or neurologist.
