Neuromuscular Disorders Program

Comprehensive care for all neuromuscular diseases

At the Neuromuscular Disorders Program at Tufts Medical Center in Boston, our team of highly trained neurologists and specialists take a personal approach to care that you might not expect at a major academic medical center. We are sensitive to what you and your family are going through — and will do all we can to help you face the challenges that lie ahead.

Our program provides comprehensive care for the full spectrum of neuromuscular diseases and disorders, including:

These conditions are diagnosed using several different methods, including electromyography (EMG), which are described here.

A team with specialized expertise

Our program's small team works together to tend to the needs of you and your family. The first person who sees you during your visits is either our medical assistant or our nurse practitioner, who gets us up to date on your status. If an electromyography test is needed for diagnostic purposes, our technologist shows great care in walking you through what can be an uncomfortable experience. And our clinic nurse can help you with everything from scheduling appointments with other specialties to procuring equipment such as braces, walkers and wheelchairs.

Referring Physician Resources

At the Neuromuscular Disorders Program, we value the relationship that referring physicians have with their patients. In order to maintain strong lines of communication and promote continuity of care, we will fax you a note summarizing our findings following each patient visit.
