We offer multidisciplinary care for ALS and other neuromuscular diseases, such as spinal muscular atrophy, muscular dystrophies and other myopathies, hereditary and acquired neuropathies, myasthenia, and other disorders.

Our compassionate care team includes neurologists with expertise in neuromuscular diseases in adults and children, as well as cardiologists, pulmonologists, orthopaedic surgeons, geneticists, nurses, and an orthotist and a social worker.

Our group is actively involved in clinical trials involving patients with ALS, neuropathy, and myasthenia gravis, as well as basic research on neuromuscular disease.
