This branch treats the following conditions:

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (better known as ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s Disease) is a disease that affects the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord.  Progressive degeneration of the motor neurons that communicate with the muscles leads first to the loss of muscle control and eventually to paralysis and then death.

Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita (AMC) is a disease affecting newborns which causes stiffness in the joints and muscle weakness.

Autoimmune diseases cause the body ‘s immune system to attack itself, rather than working to heal itself.  Examples of autoimmune diseases include lupus, AIDS, rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile diabetes, and pulmonary fibrosis.  The presence of one autoimmune disease makes a patient more susceptible to developing an additional autoimmune disease.

Cardiac anomalies refer to a range of conditions that affect the heart, ranging from heart murmurs to hypertension to angina.  Some are caused by lifestyle and diet, and others are congenital (present from birth).

Traumatic injury refers to damage to the body caused by force or violence (for example, a car accident, a gunshot wound, or a fall).  Catastrophic injury is an injury that creates a permanent disability, such as paralysis or chronic pain, which dramatically alters a person’s life and the lives of their loved ones.  Some examples of catastrophic injury include accidental amputation, severe burns, blindness, or paralysis.

Chromosomal abnormalities refer to anomalies in the number or structure of chromosomes, the structures that hold our genes. Some examples of conditions caused by chromosomal abnormalities include Down Syndrome and Turner Syndrome.

Cystic fibrosis is a life-threatening, inherited condition that causes cells in the lungs to create excess amounts of mucus, causing severe damage to the lungs and to the digestive system.

Endocrine disorders refer to a range of conditions that affect the endocrine glands.  Interference with the endocrine glands affects the hormones that help to regulate appetite, breathing, growth, and more.  Conditions caused by endocrine disorders include diabetes and hyperthyroidism.

Gastrointestinal disorders refer to a range of conditions that affect the gastrointestinal (digestive) system, ranging from mild conditions like diarrhea to life-threatening conditions like stomach cancer. A gastrostomy is a surgical procedure for inserting a tube, used for feeding or drainage, through the wall of the abdomen and into the stomach.  Some conditions which may call for a gastrostomy include a birth defect which interferes with an infant’s ability to nurse, or an obstruction in the digestive system such as a peptic ulcer or a tumor.
