In order to provide excellence in treatment and research, U-M has created two other centers to target specific neuromuscular conditions:
Motor Neuron Disease/ALS Center
Provides information about the clinical and research efforts underway for ALS/motor neuron disease patients in Michigan.
U-M Peripheral Neuropathy Center
Provides information about the multidisciplinary approach to the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the peripheral nerves and muscles.
