Muscular Dystrophy (MD) is a muscular genetic disorder caused by the absence of a protein called ‘dystrophin’. It is characterized by progressive weakness in the muscles (especially the proximal muscles present in the shoulder and hip regions). People with MD find day-to-day activities such as walking, climbing stairs, and lifting things particularly challenging.
However, with the advent of stem cell therapy, recovery is now a distinct possibility. At Plexus, we provide customized treatment programs for patients suffering from any type of muscle dystrophies such as Duchenne’s, Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA), and limb girdle. The programs include stem cell transplants in conjunction with rehabilitation therapies for holistic treatment.
