Neuromuscular Disorders: Why Choose Vanderbilt

  • Experienced doctors: Our doctors are board certified in neurology and neuromuscular disorders. They have treated these disorders throughout their careers, and they have the knowledge to offer you the most effective treatments.
  • A team approach: You’ll have access to a full range of specialists at Vanderbilt who can treat your specific symptoms. Our team works with specialists throughout Vanderbilt University Medical Center, including pulmonologists, social workers, palliative care nurse practitioners, respiratory therapists, assistive technologists, speech therapy nutritionists, physical therapists and occupational therapists.
  • Personalized care: The challenges your condition brings — physical and emotional — are unique to you. Other patients with the same disorder might share similar symptoms, but no one else’s experience is exactly like yours. We work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan focusing on your diagnosis, medical history, symptoms and goals.
  • Recognized care: We’re honored to have been designated as a Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA)/Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Clinic. Additionally, we’re recognized as a Center of Excellence by the GBS/CIDP Foundation International.
  • Clinical trials: As part of an academic medical center, we take part in research that seeks better treatments for a variety of neuromuscular disorders. You can talk with your doctor about any clinical trials that are appropriate for you.
  • A responsive team: Our secure online portal, My Health at Vanderbilt, lets you message your care team 24/7, make appointments, refill prescriptions and access medical records.
