A Designated Cure JM Center of Excellence
Our decades of experience managing juvenile dermatomyositis, juvenile polymyositis, and other inflammatory myopathies is recognized by our designation as a Cure JM Center of Excellence.
A Team of Pediatric Specialists
In addition to a pediatric rheumatologist, your child will benefit from the care provided by a team of experts that includes metabolic and genetic specialists, a neuromuscular neurologist, physical and occupational therapists, pulmonary specialists, dermatologists, and others. Together, they will diagnose and manage your child’s condition and the complications associated with the disease.
Our team includes internationally recognized researchers whose work focuses on better understanding the cause of these diseases and identifying factors that can determine which children will respond to standard therapy and which may not.
Transition to Adult Care
Adolescents participate in a transition program that introduces them to the self-care skills they will need as they become young adults with a chronic disease. At the same time, they will transition their care to an adult rheumatologist.
