How can I get Help?

The Neuromuscular and Neurometabolic Centre is a new program at McMaster Children’s Hospital, dedicated to improving the lives of people affected by Mitochondrial disease.

A team of health professionals and support staff, under the direction of Dr. Mark Tarnopolsky, provides care that focuses on the needs of patients and their families.

You and your family will work closely with the members of the health care team.

Depending on your needs, you may meet:

  • specialized doctors
  • developmental pediatrician
  • registered nurse
  • neuropsychiatrist
  • kinesiologists
  • EMG technicians
  • genetic counsellor
  • occupational therapist
  • speech and language pathologist
  • physiotherapist

The Neuromuscular and Neurometabolic Centre was established with a generous donation from Warren Lammert and his family. This gift helped us create the first clinic in Canada that diagnoses, treats and cares for people with Mitochondrial disease throughout their life span.

Patients and families benefit from our extensive and ongoing research, cutting edge diagnostic and treatment facilitates and commitment to the highest quality of care.
