Child Neurology Consultants of Austin

MDA Clinic

Child Neurology Consultants of Austin, in partnership with the Muscular Dystrophy Association, is helping to improve the lives of children in Central Texas living with nerve or muscle disorders.

Our MDA Clinic offers comprehensive care for children with neuromuscular disorders such as muscular dystrophies, spinal muscular atrophy, congenital myopathies, and hereditary neuropathies (Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease).

MDA maintains a network of more than 200 specialized clinics. Our affiliation with this nationally recognized organization allows our patient families to benefit from MDA’s support services, advocacy, resources and education.

Board-certified pediatric neuromuscular specialist Dr. Meeta Cardon is director for the MDA Clinic. Several other CNCA board-certified pediatric neurologists assist with the program, including Dr. Lindsay Elton, Dr. Jinfon Ong and Dr. Michael Reardon

Team Approach

Patients who are treated in Child Neurology Consultants of Austin’s MDA Clinic have access to all the specialists they need in one location, including:

  • Neurology
  • Cardiology
  • Pulmonology
  • Orthopedic Surgery
  • Physical Therapy
  • Orthotics
  • Durable Medical Equipment Specialist
  • Social Work
  • MDA Representative

This multidisciplinary approach allows families to receive coordinated care in an efficient setting and to have an individualized care plan specially designed to improve their child’s function and well-being.

Our MDA Clinic is held one Friday per month. A visit typically lasts two to three hours to allow each patient to be seen by all the consultants necessary for their individualized treatment plan.

What Sets Us Apart

Our compassion runs deep. Our physicians and nurses have organized this multidisciplinary clinic to serve our neuromuscular patients in a manner that rivals top academic centers across the country. For this, the MDA formally recognizes our practice.

Furthermore, every year CNCA volunteers for MDA Summer Camp, a place where kids from 6-18 years with neuromuscular disease can safely go on adventures while building self-confidence and independence. To find out more about the camp, contact the Central Texas division of the Muscular Dystrophy Association at (512) 691-0065.
