Johns Hopkins Muscular Dystrophy Center

The Muscular Dystrophy Center at Johns Hopkins is affiliated with the Muscular Dystrophy Association and offers diagnosis, symptom management, education and hope for a brighter future to patients and families living with neuromuscular diseases. Johns Hopkins has pioneered many of the therapies used in the treatment of these diseases today and continues to lead the scientific community toward finding the cause of and cure for neuromuscular diseases. In the meantime, our goal is to help patients maximize independence and minimize complications of these conditions.

Conditions We Treat

In addition to muscular dystrophies, our team treats other types of muscle disorders, including inherited nerve disorders, motor neuron disease and disorders of the neuromuscular junction.

Neuromuscular Clinical Studies

We created a database of all open and upcoming clinical studies spanning a wide range of neuromuscular disorders.

Our Multi-Specialty Approach

Our focus is on your health and quality of life. People diagnosed with neuromuscular conditions benefit from a lifelong partnership with the care team. We look forward to forming that unique partnership with you. We offer a variety of services, many provided conveniently during same-day appointments, to help with all aspects of the disease. Our same-day multi-specialty evaluation approach is not only convenient, but also facilitates better care, as all the participating specialists are in the same clinic and can confer with each other about the best care plan.
