Research suggests that the best outcomes for patients with complex disorders are achieved with a multidisciplinary team approach.
At the University of Michigan Muscular Dystrophy Clinics, supported by the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), a diverse team of clinicians and health care providers work together to address the complex needs of each individual. The University of Michigan’s Muscular Dystrophy Multidisciplinary clinics follows over 700 patients annually, for diagnoses such as Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, Spinal Muscular Atrophy, and Inherited Neuropathy (Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, or CMT). The Charcot-Marie-Tooth Association (CMTA) has recognized our CMT Clinic as one of 10 Centers of Excellence in clinical and research care in the United States.
From initial diagnosis and counseling, to prescribing therapeutics and providing rehabilitative care, the University of Michigan MDA clinic aims to maximize the Quality of Life of all our patients and their caregivers.
