Welcome To The University of Illinois Neuromuscular Center!

The Neuromuscular Center at University of Illinois seeks to diagnose and care for patients with a variety of neuromuscular diseases. Our specialized clinics assist the patient with the physical, emotional and financial issues created by Neuromuscular disease.

Just as importantly, our clinicians work with neuroscientists in cutting edge research to improve our understanding of the disease process and explore new treatment / curative possibilities.

The dedication and collaboration of the entire team of physicians, caregivers and researchers provides the framework to make this all possible.
