Crystal Proud, MD
Health Center at Medical Center
850 Southampton Ave
Norfolk, Virginia, United States
Crystal Proud went on to Eastern Virginia Medical School, followed by a residency in pediatrics at Emory University. She received subspecialty training at Stanford University in both child neurology and pediatric neuromuscular neurology, participating in clinical research trials for children with muscular dystrophy and spinal muscular atrophy (SMA). She has continued this interest at Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters (CHKD), where CHKD has research opportunities for children with various neuromuscular conditions.
In addition to caring for children with general neurologic conditions, Dr. Proud is a board-certified pediatric neuromuscular neurologist, meaning she has expertise in caring for children with spinal muscular atrophy, Charcot Marie Tooth neuropathy, muscular dystrophies, congenital myopathies, and myasthenia gravis. Dr. Proud was part of a clinical trial on exon-skipping technology, one of several studies she has joined on drugs designed to extend patients’ lifespans. Dr. Proud also is involved in research on the first form of gene therapy for SMA, the drug Zolgensma.
CHKD offers a multi-disciplinary Muscular Dystrophy Association Clinic where Dr. Proud works collaboratively with many subspecialists to provide the best care for children with nerve and muscle disease.
