Overview

At Stanford's Center for Inherited Cardiovascular Disease, we work closely with our colleagues in Pediatric and Adult Neurology (MDA Clinic), Genetics, Pulmonary, and Physical Medicine in order to optimize care for our Muscular Dystrophy and Neuromuscular Disease patients. As each patient has unique needs and cardiac problems, we will tailor a treatment and monitoring plan to best suit these needs.

Our pediatric and adult cardiologists work closely together to ensure that patients transitioning from pediatric to adult clinics have a smooth transition.

Part of our family

We recognize that families with neuromuscular disease and muscular dystrophy face unique challenges. Our team seeks to bring physicians, families and patients together, so that each patient and family member knows that they are not alone. We arrange a field trip with our neuromuscular disease patients each year. This year's trip was hosted by Willow Garage, a personal robotics company located in Menlo Park, CA.

Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are research studies that evaluate a new medical approach, device, drug, or other treatment. As a Stanford Health Care 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.
