ALS & Neuromuscular Diseases Clinic

The Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Clinic at the University of Chicago Medicine is one of the longest continuously running ALS clinics in the world. We offer multidisciplinary care for ALS and other neuromuscular diseases, such as spinal muscular atrophy, muscular dystrophies and other myopathies, hereditary and acquired neuropathies, myasthenia gravis and other disorders.

Our compassionate care team includes neurologists with expertise in neuromuscular diseases in both adults and children, as well as cardiologists, pulmonologists, orthopaedic surgeons, geneticists, nurses, orthotists and social workers.

Our group is actively involved in clinical trials involving patients with ALS, neuropathy and myasthenia gravis, as well as basic research on neuromuscular disease.
