The Neuromuscular program, which is orthopedic focused, cares for children with a multitude of conditions, i.e. Cerebral Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy, and Arthrogyposis. The goal of our program is to manage the complex medical needs of these children as well as provide support and guidance for their family and caregivers.
