Pediatric Neuromuscular Disease

Children’s Health Dallas Neuromuscular Disease Clinic provides optimal medical treatment for a wide range of disorders and is dedicated to making your child’s life better. But quality care also includes emotional and social support for the patient, parents and family members. Neuromuscular diseases are as complex as they are rare. Thus, the care needs to be comprehensive.

The multidisciplinary team in our Neuromuscular Disease Clinic is committed to diagnosing, treating and delivering first-class care for the wide-ranging needs that come with neuromuscular disorders.

Comprehensive care

The Neuromuscular Disease Clinic at Children’s Medical Center is dedicated to making life better for children suffering from neuromuscular disorders. We are a multidisciplinary team committed to diagnosing, treating and delivering first-class care. Our multidisciplinary practice includes doctors from many different specialties including Neurology, Pulmonology, Cardiology, Gastroenterology and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. This helps us treat the whole child as well as properly support and educate family members and caregivers.

Neuromuscular diseases are rare and complex. Therefore, caring for children as well as their families living with a neuromuscular disorder requires comprehensive care for wide-ranging needs. We are devoted to providing you and your family with quality care in all aspects of the disease process including medical, emotional and social support. Have questions?

Advancing medicine with research

The Neuromuscular Disease Clinic actively engages in multiple national and international research trials focused on investigating promising treatment options and increasing information about rare neuromuscular disorders. In addition to helping advance scientific discoveries, our research may offer you and your child hope when other treatment options may not have been successful. Our clinic’s research coordinator can provide you with information about clinical trials and how to enroll your child in a study. Current research involves Duchenne muscular dystrophy and spinal muscular atrophy (SMA). If you are interested in learning more information regarding a clinical trial or enrolling your child in a study, please contact research coordinator, Anne Marie Jones at 214-456-9561.
