Neuromuscular Clinic

The UCSF Neuromuscular Clinic provides comprehensive treatment for patients with various neuromuscular diseases. These conditions affect the nerves that control voluntary muscle movement as well as nerves that relay sensory information to the brain.

Our team is made up of different types of doctors and other health care professionals, who work together to identify each patient's needs and control symptoms. This includes neurologists, pulmonologists, gastroenterologists, nurses, social workers, a dietitian, a genetic counselor, a communication specialist, and occupational, physical, speech and respiratory therapists. 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.

We offer a specialized clinic for patients with ALS and related neurodegenerative conditions, which has been named a certified treatment center of excellence by the ALS Association, as well as a center dedicated to treating peripheral nerve problems.

We are part of the UCSF Weill Institute for Neurosciences.
