About Muscular Dystrophy

Muscular dystrophy belongs to a group of genetic neuromuscular conditions where muscles slowly degenerate and weaken. Where muscle would normally rebuild and continue to grow, in neuromuscular conditions once the muscles are damaged they have limited ability to repair. Neuromuscular conditions affect more than 20,000 Australians and we support around 800 families in WA.

PlusLife Donor Liaison staff discuss donation with hip replacement patients and obtain their consent before surgery.</p> <p> <strong>Cadaveric (deceased) Donation</strong> - with the consent of the next of kin, PlusLife may also retrieve bone and tissues (including tendons and ligaments) from deceased persons. This program provides the large structural grafts used for major limb saving and reconstruction procedures for patients with bone cancers and those requiring complex joint replacement surgeries. </p>
