MDA Clinic at Dartmouth-Hitchcock

The MDA Clinics at Dartmouth-Hitchcock feature teams of physicians and health care professionals working together to help patients manage day to day living with muscle disease. We treat a variety of hereditary muscular dystrophies such as Duchenne MD, Becker MD, Oculopharyngeal MD, Fascioscapulohumeral MD and Myotonic dystrophy; acquired disorders such as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS); and hereditary neuropathies such as Charcot Marie Tooth.

We bring together a variety of specialties including Neurology, Pulmonary Medicine, Physical Therapy, Social Work, and additional resources into one location to meet with patients rather than having patients travel to multiple offices for services. This multidisciplinary approach means our patients receive treatment in one location that is tailored to their unique needs.

Working closely with the Muscular Dystrophy Association, the MDA Clinics at Dartmouth-Hitchcock link patients to services and resources in the community that provide information and support for those with neuromuscular disease. In addition, representatives from the Muscular Dystrophy Association are often present during the Clinics to assist patients in making important connections in their communities.
