The Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) Clinic uses an interdisciplinary team approach to diagnose and care for patients with varying types of muscular dystrophy, a neuromuscular disease.
Dartmouth-Hitchcock offers this clinic in Lebanon, NH.
The conditions we treat include:
- Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
- Becker Muscular Dystrophy
- Charcot-Marie Tooth
- Congenital Muscular Dystrophy
- Distal Muscular Dystrophy
- Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy
- Emery-Dreifuss Muscular Dystrophy
- Friedrich's Ataxia
- Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy

Our experts can advise about all aspects of medical management of neuromuscular disease, including occupational, speech, respiratory and physical therapy. The MDA assists with purchase and repair of wheelchairs or leg braces when prescribed by MDA clinic physicians, and with the purchase of communication devices.
We are staffed by a pediatric neurologist, orthopedist, psychiatrist, pulmonologist, occupational therapist, and social worker.
