Accurate diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular conditions is often complex, and may require a variety of interdisciplinary specialists working together. At Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford, our internationally recognized team of experts serves infants to young adults living with close to 50 different neuromuscular conditions.

Our mission is to apply groundbreaking research and personalized care to diagnose and treat patients with even the most challenging conditions, and to deliver superior outcomes through multi-disciplinary care. Your child’s team is comprised of neurologists, a physical therapist, occupational therapist, speech and language pathologist, social worker, nurse practitioner, genetic counselor, and community outreach liaison.

We also coordinate care with other specialties as required. These may include Cardiology, Pulmonology, Orthopedics, Endocrinology, and Gastroenterology/Nutrition. Working together, we provide innovative, comprehensive and compassionate care in a supportive environment to ensure that children experience life to their fullest potential.
