Clinical work

As part of the team led by Dr Jodi Warman Chardon, Dr Lochmüller sees adult neuromuscular patients in clinic at the Ottawa Neuromuscular Centre, located at the Civic Campus of The Ottawa Hospital. This state-of-the-art centre allows people with NMDs to have consultations with neuromuscular experts and to participate in clinical research.

Children with neuromuscular diseases from across the region are seen at CHEO, the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario. Dr McMillan and Dr Yaworski are the primary neurology/neuromuscular specialists involved in the paediatric service, with Dr Lochmüller’s focus at CHEO primarily being on the clinical trials led by the team.

If you are a Canadian resident interested in being seen by the team, please get in touch. A referral may be required. Contact Administrative Assistant Jenna Gurniak for further information.
