Kenneth Fischbeck, M.D., Chief, Neurogenetics Branch and Clinic Director
The Neurogenetics clinic is founded on the belief that understanding the mechanism and causes of disease can lead to effective treatment. Our Neurogenetics Clinic is a one-day outpatient clinic that evaluates individuals and their family members who have a known or suspected inherited/familial neurological disorder.
Some of the disorders seen include: inherited neuropathies, myopathies, muscular dystrophies, and spastic paraplegias. Genetic testing is often offered for diagnostics and research purposes.
If you are a patient with a known or suspected, inherited neurological disorder, interested in participating in our diagnostic and observational study, please contact:
