Neuromuscular Programs


The Charles H. Kaman Foundation Neuromuscular Center includes the Motor Neuron Disease (MND) Clinic and the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) Clinic, both held weekly at HSC. A team approach to care is provided for patients in both the MND Clinic and MDA Clinic. In addition, Drs. Felice and Whitaker evaluate general neuromuscular disorders such as myasthenia gravis, chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy, and multifocal motor neuropathy.
