The NeMO clinical centers are the reference network for diagnosis, treatment, assistance and research on neuromuscular and neurodegenerative diseases, home for those in need of care and for those who accompany them.
We pay close attention to the family's and the person's needs
The clinical and welfare requirements of adults and children with neuromuscular and neurodegenerative diseases, including as ALS, SMA and muscular dystrophy, have been specifically addressed since 2008 by NeMO Clinical Center (NeurMuscular Clinical Centre).
NeMO Clinical Centre is currently a reference network for the diagnosis, treatment, and research for various pathologies. It was created and developed thanks to the intuition and will of a community of patients, in collaboration with the Institutions and the scientific community.
For NeMO, the patient’s care is a lifelong process that follows the patient and their family through every stage of the illness.
Multidisciplinarity is the foundation of the treatment model of NeMO Clinical Center.
The presence of specialists with various clinical specializations who collaborate to guarantee continuity of care within the departments enables multidisciplinarity to be truly realized. The facilities are set up with rooms for both routine and very complex hospitalization, as well as outpatient and day hospital sections, pediatric areas, gymnasiums, common areas, gardens, and terraces.
The NeMO model is built on the continuity between research and care; scientific activity involves the entire NeMO network and, as a result, is a crucial component of the main national and worldwide scientific networks.
