Jennifer Kwon, MD


Jennifer Kwon, MD, is a UW Health Kids pediatric neurologist and the director of the pediatric neuromuscular program. She treats children from birth to age 18 with neurological disorders.

Dr. Kwon’s clinical interest is in pediatric neuromuscular disorders (conditions that affect the muscles and nerves, which cause weakness and motor function difficulties). Her speciality is in working with children living with spinal muscular atrophy and Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

Dr. Kwon’s philosophy is to provide patients with the highest standard of pediatric neuromuscular care. She believes that working together as a team with other health providers is essential for treating complex medical needs.

In addition to her clinical practice, Dr. Kwon is a professor in the Department of Neurology at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. Her research focuses on sponsored clinical trials for new investigative drugs to treat pediatric neuromuscular disorders.

In her free time, Dr. Kwon enjoys knitting, biking and hiking.

I have always enjoyed helping children and their families. Children with disabilities have many talents, so it is important to help them achieve success.
