MDA Clinics at Dartmouth-Hitchcock

The Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) Clinics at Dartmouth-Hitchcock features teams of physicians and health care professionals who work together to help patients manage day to day living with muscle disease.

We treat a variety of hereditary muscular dystrophies (MDs), including

  • Becker MD
  • Duchenne MD
  • Fascioscapulohumeral MD
  • Myotonic dystrophy
  • Oculopharyngeal MD

We also treat acquired disorders such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and hereditary neuropathies such as Charcot-Marie-Tooth.

A multidisciplinary approach

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.

We work closely with the Muscular Dystrophy Association to 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 clinic to assist patients in making important connections in their communities.
