The UCSF Neuromuscular Clinic provides comprehensive treatment for patients with various neuromuscular diseases.
Our multi-disciplinary ALS clinic team includes neurologists, pulmonologists, gastroenterologists, nurses, social workers, a dietitian, a genetic counselor, a communication specialist, and occupational, physical, speech and respiratory therapists. They work together to identify your treatment needs and control your symptoms.
Our patients also have access to an orthotist who specializes in braces and other devices to support weak muscles and joints; as well as representatives from local patient advocacy organizations. Patients may be eligible to participate in clinical trials, which are studies to test promising new medications or other types of treatment.
We are part of the UCSF Weill Institute for Neurosciences.
