What They Are


The Patient Education Sheets are one-page documents intended to answer the most common questions someone has when they are first diagnosed. They cover the basics of the conditions, the symptoms, diagnosis, surgery, and what to expect. The information is in bullet fashion and is not intended to be comprehensive, but rather to give a good overview.

How To Use Them


The sheets can be used to educate anyone interested in learning more about the conditions, or to give medical professionals who are not familiar with CM/SM something they can look at. You may email them or print them out and use them freely. We do ask that if you cut and paste a portion of the document for a different use, please acknowledge the source, by including our web address.
