Muscular Dystrophy

Sanford Children’s is dedicated to providing leading care for children affected by neuromuscular disorders and disease. In addition, through cooperation with the Muscular Dystrophy Association, Sioux Falls offers a monthly comprehensive clinic for children and adolescents with muscular dystrophy, spinal muscular atrophy, myasthenia gravis, genetic myopathies and other neuromuscular disorders.

Children with Muscular Dystrophy will be seen in Fargo at the Coordinated Treatment Center (within the Sanford Broadway Clinic) and in Sioux Falls at Sanford Children’s Specialty Clinic.

The Meaning of Muscular Dystrophy

Muscular dystrophy (MD) is a genetic disorder that gradually weakens the body's muscles. It's caused by incorrect or missing genetic information that prevents the body from making the proteins needed to build and maintain healthy muscles. Sanford Children’s researchers and neurologists are working hard to help find a cure for this disorder and provide advanced treatment.
