Pediatric Neurology; Pediatric Neuromuscular Disorders

Accepting new patients

Introduction

Treating the seemingly untreatable and achieving unexpected success for patients is the goal of Dr. Matias Sebastian Lopez Chacon, the newest member of Boys Town Pediatric Neurology team. “Within the ever-evolving world of neuromuscular medicine, the discovery of new medications for prev​iously untreatable diseases motivates me to give my every effort to the best care for children,” Lopez Chapon said.

His area of expertise is in conditions such as motor control, spinal muscular atrophy and weakness, nerve diseases, muscular disorders involving muscular dystrophy and others. Dr. Lopez Chapon is a graduate of Pontificia Universidad Católica del Ecuador School of Medicine in Quito, Ecuador. He completed his Pediatric Neurology Residency at Ann and Robert Lurie Children's Hospital in Chicago in June and is currently in the Pediatric Neuromuscular Medicine Fellowship at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

Early diagnosis is important, he said. “It’s vital that we establish a connection with children and their families for the lifetime journey of health and healing we’ll have together.”

Dr. Lopez Chacon takes a holistic approach to care. “I consider myself a point of reference interacting with the rest of the team,” he said. “With information from these sources, I plan for the patient’s needs. It’s about primary prevention to avoid complications down the line.”
