The DMD Clinic

The Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) Clinic at the University of Michigan is a multidisciplinary clinic that sees children and adults with a suspected or confirmed diagnosis of Duchenne or Becker muscular dystrophy.  We also have a Transitional Care Clinic, which specifically focuses on the care of teenagers and young adults with neuromuscular conditions transitioning to adulthood.  The DMD clinic is sponsored in part by the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), as well as through the generous support of private donors.
