Treatments for Spinal Muscular Atrophy

Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) can’t be cured. This makes early diagnosis of SMA important. Treatment may depend on your age, overall health, and the type of SMA you have.

Northwestern Memorial Hospital is currently the only provider of Nusinersen in Illinois, treating a growing number of patients who have different types of SMAs, including Types III and IV.
