Neuromuscular disorders strike 1.5 million Americans annually. Afflicting both young and old – and often those in the prime of life – diseases such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, peripheral neuropathy, myasthenia gravis, and myopathies are debilitating, often progressive, and sometimes fatal. Weakness, paralysis, respiratory distress, and intractable pain caused by a nerve disease dramatically alter quality of life for both patients and families.
Cleveland Clinic's Neuromuscular Center specializes in the diagnosis, treatment, and research of these and other neuromuscular disorders. Specialists at the Neuromuscular Center offer comprehensive workups to achieve accurate diagnosis of nerve disease and rely upon state-of-the-art treatment modalities to optimize quality of life. Both inpatients and outpatients benefit from well-orchestrated teamwork by Cleveland Clinic specialists and allied health professionals.
Neurologists, pulmonologists, rheumatologists, pathologists, anesthesiologists, surgeons, and orthopedists join forces with orthotics, physical and occupational therapists, speech pathologists, dieticians, nurse clinicians, and social workers to offer comprehensive, compassionate care for those with neuromuscular disorders.
