The Charcot-Marie-Tooth Center at Johns Hopkins

Mission Statement:

  • To provide optimal clinical care and enhance the quality of life to individuals and their families living with Charcot-Marie Tooth (CMT) disease through a comprehensive, multidisciplinary, and educational model of care.
  • To provide opportunities for the participation in basic and clinical research related to the causes, pathogenesis, and treatment of CMT including therapeutic trials

The CMT Center at Johns Hopkins is recognized world-wide as a leader in providing superior clinical care and offering the latest in clinical trials and therapies to CMT patients. The CMT Center provides comprehensive clinical care and disease education from initial diagnosis to advanced disease. Our team provides sensitive and caring support for patients and their families. The therapeutic goal is to maximize a patient’s health, functioning, and ability using available therapy, equipment, exercise, and nutrition. Clinical research participation is offered to all appropriate and eligible CMT clinic patients.

First, patients are initially evaluated by a Johns Hopkins neurologist in the Johns Hopkins Outpatient Center. These physicians are specially trained in neuromuscular diseases, CMT, and multiple disorders closely related to CMT. Once diagnosis is confirmed by the neurologist, the multidisciplinary care team help develop an appropriate treatment plan for the patient. The team includes genetics counselors, physical therapists, occupational therapists and orthotists.
