Led by Dr. Craig Zaidman, the pediatric neuromuscular team is a group of experienced clinical and research professionals committed to the compassionate care of children with neuromuscular diseases. Our focus is on evidence-based treatments and the development of innovative therapies for neuromuscular disorders. Taking a holistic approach, we ensure both patients and their families receive the care they need.  

Our Combined Clinic

Working in a combined clinic setting, we offer combined appointments so families can see multiple physicians in one visit. In addition to seeing a neuromuscular specialist, our clinics include specialists in physical therapy, mobility devices, orthotics, a nurse coordinator, and social work services.

Our combined clinic brings together specialists in neurology, cardiology, pulmonology, bone health, physical therapy, mobility, a nurse coordinator, and social work services. This multidisciplinary partnership extends to orthopedic specialists, geneticists, and nutritionists to ensure complete care for our patients and their families. 

Our practitioners often see affected family members together and offer both in-person and telehealth visits.

Leading Edge Research

As part of a nationally recognized research hospital, we are leaders in large clinical trials investigating potential treatments for neuromuscular diseases. This research includes the development of gene-modifying therapies for spinal muscular atrophy and Duchenne muscular dystrophy.   

Our extensive clinical research positions us at the forefront of newly approved therapeutics, placing us among the first US centers to administer FDA-approved therapies for children with neuromuscular conditions. 

We offer world-class care to children thanks in part to generous gifts from hundreds of people who have joined us in making health care better for all children. This philanthropic support enables us to fulfill our mission to do what's right for kids.
