Over the past twenty years, the department has applied TCM to treating various myatrophies and achieved preferable results. Especially for difficult myatrophic diseases of motor neuron disease, muscular dystrophy, myasthenia gravis, multiple sclerosis and syringomyelia, the department storms strongholds in defiance of difficulties, brings forth new ideas, and makes a breakthrough in traditional diagnosis and treatment with TCM on amyotrophy related diseases, and under the theoretic guidance of extra meridians and collateral vessels, creates a comparatively perfect therapy system characterized by traditional Chinese medicine. The department has become a reputed specialty for the treatment of myatrophic diseases throughout the country, and over the past twenty years, it has diagnosed and treated over one hundred thousand myatrophic patients both at home and abroad, some of which come from countries and regions like Russia, Japan, Pakistan, Egypt, Poland, Canada and Australia.
