Your child deserves to live as fully as possible. We help make it happen. The Comprehensive Neuromuscular Center at Cincinnati Children’s is dedicated to helping children and adolescents with neuromuscular disorders live better, fuller lives. Our experience is second to none. We currently have more than 1,100 children in our care, children who are living with a range of neuromuscular diseases.
Our talented medical team uses an interdisciplinary approach to diagnose and treat your child. Our doctors conduct research into the most effective treatments. And we make these treatments available to your child.
Neuromuscular disorders affect children on many levels – medical, social and emotional. Our staff of experts in a variety of disciplines work closely together to address these wide-ranging needs. These disciplines include cardiology, pulmonary, genetics, neurology, physical therapy, rehabilitation, social services, endocrinology, and nephrology. After your child is thoroughly evaluated, we will develop an individualized care plan for him or her – one that works for you and your family’s busy lifestyle. This collaborative approach ensures that your child receives the best possible care.
Some of what we provide:
Our team provides lifelong consultative care for your child, including regular visits to maintain up-to-date treatment and support. Reports are provided to your child’s primary care physician following each appointment.
Our center has developed an interdisciplinary research program that integrates clinical, translational and basic research strategies. Our specialists participate in clinical trials, working to identify improved therapies. As a result of this research, our patients are among the first to benefit from new discoveries.
The Certified Duchenne Care Center Program helps to ensure centers maintain the highest standards in clinical and sub-specialty services, rapidly apply new evidence based knowledge, and comply with standards in clinical care that were established by the CDC Care Considerations. The goal of the program is to reduce discrepancies in care and to make comprehensive care accessible and available for all patients with Duchenne.

In October 2012 doctors at Cincinnati Children's made what may have been the biggest breakthrough in muscular dystrophy in years when they implanted a device into a patient with Duchenne muscular dystrophy to help his heart pump blood to the body long-term.
