Managing a neuromuscular disorder can be challenging for everyone involved. In the Sutter Health network, we offer assistance every step of the way, from diagnosis through lifelong management of the disease.
Our specialists provide a full range of diagnostic and treatment options, from medication and pain management services to advanced treatments, such as baclofen pump insertion, botulinum toxin therapy (Botox), and microvascular decompression surgery.
We’re proud to offer:
- Award-winning programs that have received national attention for delivering personalized and compassionate care to our patients with neuromuscular disorders.
- A Neuromuscular Telemedicine program where you can meet “face-to-face” over a computer in real time with your care team to receive ongoing assessments and recommendations from the convenience of your own home.
- Services at our Forbes Norris MDA/ALS Research Center in San Francisco, one of the largest ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) and Lou Gehrig’s disease clinical research centers in the United States. It is one of five national Muscular Dystrophy Association ALS Centers chosen as research centers of excellence, and one of three Certified Centers of Excellence in California for treating ALS patients.
- Specialty programs at our Forbes Norris MDA/ALS Research Center, which was honored in 2010 with the Program of the Year Award by the California Speech-Language-Hearing Association, one of the highest honors the association can bestow.
