Austin Neuromuscular Center has opened an in-office infusion center in order to provide integrated care for Dr. Hussain’s patients. This gives him the ability to directly supervise patient care. Administering infusible treatments in-office allows Dr. Hussain to more closely monitor clinical outcomes, treatment adherence and the occurrence of adverse effects.
IVig and Rituxan infusions are among the most effective therapies for neuromuscular diseases such as:
- Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP)
- Guillain-Barre syndrome
- Multifocal motor neuropathy
- Stiff-person syndrome
- Myasthenia gravis
- Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome
Radicava™ is shown to slow decline in the loss of physical function in patients with ALS and is the first FDA approved treatment option in more than twenty years.
- Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
Our center is equipped with an infusion suite and registered nurse who is familiar with the administration and complications of this therapy for both adult and pediatric patients.
At our infusion center, patients enjoy:
- Comfortable leather recliners
- Individual wireless tablets and reading materials
- Snacks and beverages
- Warming blankets
- Wireless internet access
- Convenient free parking
Appointments & Referrals
Austin Neuromuscular Center is a referral-based practice:
Before an appointment can be scheduled, the referring provider must fax a referral to our office (512-920-0142). The referral can be from another specialist or a primary care provider (PCP).
In addition, if the patient has an HMO insurance policy the PCP must request a referral through the insurance company and provide an authorization number.
Referrals should include patient demographics, medical records, test results and documentation related to the referral.
If the referral is for our Infusion Center, please indicate which type of infusion (IVIG, Rituxan, Radicava).
Once the referral(s) and the documentation are received, we will review the information and contact the patient to schedule an appointment.
