The Neuromuscular Program provides primary and referral services for all disorders of the peripheral nerves and muscles. We are a fully funded MDA-ALS clinic.
We specialize in:

- Myopathy (polymyositis, dermatomyositis, inclusion body myositis),
- Neuropathy (CIDP, CMT and other inherited neuropathies, Guillain-Barre, diabetic neuropathy, undiagnosed),
- Muscular Dystrophy (FSH, Duchenne, Becker, Limb-Girdle, Myotonic, Oculopharyngeal),
- Stiff-Person Syndrome, and
- related disorders.
The Neuromuscular Program is dedicated to the delivery of expert clinical care as well as to the education of both patients and colleagues at all levels of training. Members of the Program faculty are all board certified/eligible neurologists with special training in neuromuscular disease and electromyography. The Program is very active in basic science and clinical research in various areas of neuromuscular disease, with faculty as members of both the Northeast ALS Alliance Consortium (NEALS) and the World Federation of Neurology ALS Consortium.
