Copyright © 2017 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc. All rights reserved. More than 400 acquired and genetic diseases are labeled as arthrogryposis. Because of their rarity and complexity coordinated patient management is often lacking. Multidisciplinary clinics are the ideal setting to provide coordinated and comprehensive care to patients with special needs. Two similar experiences of multidisciplinary clinics for the care of patients with arthrogryposis were reported at the Symposium on Arthrogryposis held in Saint Petersburg in September 2014. These clinics are organized to bring together professionals from several disciplines, with the aim to provide patient-centered, comprehensive clinical care, and reduce the burden of multiple medical appointments for the families.
