Care and Treatment of Neuromuscular Disorders

Your Care Team

The Neuromuscular Program provides an integrated team to deliver patient-focused care. Our approach focuses not only on identifying and controlling the neuromuscular disease, but on meeting each individual's lifelong needs at home, work and school.

Our team is comprised of various specialists with special expertise in neuromuscular disorders, including:

  • Neuromuscular physicians
  • Researchers
  • Advanced practice providors
  • Rehabilitation specialists
  • Support services and education specialists

During clinic visits, patients meet with all of the appropriate neuromuscular specialists, including a neurologist, speech-language pathologist, clinical social worker, genetic counselor, nurse practitioner, physician assistant, research assistant, community liaison, and physical, occupational and respiratory therapists.

Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are research studies that evaluate a new medical approach, device, drug, or other treatment. As a Stanford Hospital & Clinics patient, you have access to the latest, advanced clinical trials.

Open trials refer to studies currently accepting participants. Closed trials are not currently enrolling, but may open in the future.

Appointments are available by physician referral only. Call us to reschedule an appointment or to schedule a follow-up appointment.

For Health Care Professionals

Unfortunately, it is not possible for us to see all patients who are referred to us. We screen all referrals to select those who will benefit the most from a consultation. Also, most of our clinics have a significant waiting period for new consultations. Please provide as much clinical information as possible so our staff may triage the referral to the appropriate sub-specialty clinic.

We recognize that some patients may need consultation sooner than routine scheduling permits. Our doctors are happy to speak with you to facilitate urgent visits on a case-by-case basis.
