Wesley Neuromuscular Disease Clinic specializes in the multiple complex diseases of the muscles and nerves. Our team of highly skilled physicians is dedicated to diagnose and help patients with diverse disorders and provide treatment that reduces discomfort and improves their quality of life.
Neuromuscular diseases involve conditions such as: ALS or Lou Gehrig Disease, peripheral nerve diseases which are hereditary, metabolic type, and autoimmune, myopathies such as, muscular dystrophy, metabolic myopathies, polymyositis, and myasthenia gravis.
Our neuromuscular clinic is staffed by Drs. Tulio Bertorini and Yaohui Chai, MD and they are held at HealthSouth and LeBonheur and sponsored by MDA. On the second Wednesday of the month, we combine the clinics of MDA/ALS. These are multidisciplinary clinics – meaning we have many providers (i.e. speech, dietician, physical therapy, occupational therapy, wheelchair assessment, etc.). Also, Drs. Bertorini and Chai see neuromuscular patients daily in their offices.
