The Neuromuscular & Movement Disorders Program at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital offers multidisciplinary evaluation, treatment and support for children with neuromuscular disorders, including muscular dystrophies, neuropathies, spinal muscular atrophy and congenital myopathies.

A Multidisciplinary Team of Specialists

The program brings together an entire team of pediatric specialists to consult in the diagnosis and management of each child during monthly collaborative clinics. This team approach simplifies the care journey for families, enabling them to consult with all needed specialists during a single clinic visit and benefit from the collective assessment of the entire team. The specialty team includes physicians in the following pediatric specialties:

  • Neurology
  • Orthopedics
  • Cardiology
  • Pulmonology
  • Clinical genetics

The Care Experience

During the monthly clinics, patients have the opportunity to meet individually with each  member of the clinical team to discuss the patient’s care status and specific needs. During the clinic, physicians and the patients also consult collectively to ensure that all aspects of care are addressed from a multidisciplinary perspective. Between visits, the clinical care coordinator is available to address questions and concerns.
