How Boston Children’s Hospital approaches JMG:
Since 1977, thousands of children have been successfully diagnosed and treated at the Neuromuscular Center where they are evaluated and treated by a team of world-renowned experts in child neurology, orthopedics and genetics.

We use the most advanced diagnostic and treatment methods available and incorporate minimally invasive techniques whenever possible.
Our teams will work together with your family to develop treatment plans that meet your child's unique needs and provide him with the best possible quality of life.
