Welcome to the Nerve and Muscle Center of Texas

The center was established in 1998 under the pressure of necessity.  At that time, there was no center in Texas to provide comprehensive services such as clinical, neurophysiological, and pathological evaluation along with therapeutic intervention, teaching and research, in one location. The center has become a model for providing clinical services, research protocols, and teaching. 
The center accepts patients by consultation only and draws patients from many Texas cities such as Austin, Dallas, San Antonio, Victoria, Corpus Christi, and Lufkin.  Ppatients are also referred from most of the southern states and from other countries like Mexico, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Turkey, and Israel.

Understanding Treatment and Technology

The center is unique in providing a spectrum of medical services in one location. Often, patients who are referred for difficult neuromuscular syndromes, fly or drive in to Houston and stay in a hotel or a motel in Texas medical center and visit the Nerve and Muscle Center of Texas one or more times during which their extensive medical records are reviewed, a detailed history is obtained, and a through neurological and neuromuscular examination are conducted.
