Myasthenia gravis is a condition that is often misdiagnosed.
At the University of Maryland Myasthenia Gravis Center, we provide a multidisciplinary treatment approach.
Patients start by seeing one of our neuromuscular specialists, who decide on the best course of treatment and any tests needed to confirm the diagnosis. Patients also see a thoracic surgeon.
We offer a neurology-run infusion center staffed by neuromuscular specialists.
Our multidisciplinary team includes:
- Neuromuscular Specialists
- Thoracic Surgeons
- Physical Therapists
- Occupational Therapists
- ENT and Speech Language Pathology Specialists
