Pediatric Neuromuscular Program

If a child has a neuromuscular disorder, he or she may show signs of weakness, low muscle tone or delayed motor skills. Goryeb Children’s Hospital’s Neuromuscular Program can help these pediatric patients improve their mobility and basic skills for daily living.

Pediatric neuromuscular disorders that we treat:

  • Muscular dystrophies – inherited conditions that cause muscles to become progressively weaker with time

  • Channelopathies – causes loss of muscle function or weakness; also called ion channel disorders

  • Myopathies – muscle fibers do not work as they should, resulting in weakness and stiffness

  • Myositidies – inflammation and swelling of the muscles

  • Neuropathies, such as Guillain Barre Syndrome – autoimmune disorders that result in muscle weakness or paralysis

  • Motor neuron disease – signals from the brain stop reaching muscles, causing them to become weak and stiff

  • Neuromuscular junction disorders, such as myasthenia gravis and botulism – autoimmune diseases that cause voluntary muscles, such as eye lids, to weaken

Our program is the only one in New Jersey dedicated solely to the treatment of pediatric neuromuscular disorders, and we are one of the few places in the country that offers a specialized muscle ultrasound as part of the diagnostic process.

Additional neuromuscular disorder services include:

  • Electromyography (EMG) or nerve conduction studies
  • Muscle biopsy
  • Nerve biopsy
  • Skin biopsy
  • Genetic testing and counseling
  • Access to groundbreaking clinical trials
