Accurate Diagnosis for Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy
The signs of limb-girdle muscular dystrophy may resemble those of other muscular dystrophies, such as Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Getting an accurate diagnosis is crucial for obtaining proper treatment.
Stanford's Neuromuscular Program doctors have decades of experience diagnosing even the rarest types of limb-girdle muscular dystrophy. We can use our genetic testing laboratory to screen for muscular dystrophy or pinpoint the exact genetic cause of an individual's disorder.
