Seattle Children’s Neuromuscular Program offers the most comprehensive care in the Pacific Northwest for children with spinal muscular atrophy. 

• We have been named an SMA Care Center by CureSMA and an MDA Care Center by the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Both are leading advocacy groups for people with SMA.

• Our dedicated team – doctors, nurse practitioners, therapists, dietitians, genetic counselors and social workers – has expertise and experience in diagnosing and treating SMA.

• Seattle Children’s brings together pediatric specialists from Rehabilitation Medicine, Neurology and Pulmonary and Sleep Medicine to evaluate your child’s unique needs.

• If your newborn is critically ill due to spinal muscular atrophy, we provide specialized care in our Neuro NICU – the only neonatal neurocritical care program in Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana and Idaho.

• We design and provide care to help your child and family manage SMA and to give your child the best possible function and quality of life, now and as they grow.

• Seattle Children’s provides a full range of treatments, from medicines, therapy and equipment, to respiratory support and orthopedic surgery.
