Our 2023 Super Doctors® at Austin Neuromuscular Center Recognized as Rising Stars

We are thrilled to announce Dr. Yessar Hussain and Dr. Hannah Machemehl have been recognized as Super Doctors® Rising Stars in the July 2023 issue of Texas Monthly. They were selected due to peer recognition and their professional achievements. Rising Stars are those physicians who have been active and fully licensed to practice for 10 years or less. In Texas, only about 2.5% of all active physicians are selected for the Rising Stars list.

Dr. Hussain is board certified in neurology, neuromuscular medicine, electrodiagnostic medicine, and clinical neuromuscular pathology. He believes that the most effective approach to neuromuscular disorders is through comprehensive diagnostic evaluation and treatment. This vision led Dr. Hussain to establish Austin Neuromuscular Center in 2015. He then added the National Neuromuscular Research Institute to the Center as part of his continued commitment to research. Dr. Hussain also serves as an assistant professor at the University of Texas at Austin Dell Medical School.

Dr. Hannah Machemehl is board certified in neurology and has specific interests in clinical neuromuscular care, electrodiagnostic medicine, quality improvement, and medical education. She was drawn to neurology because of the cutting-edge research involving a wide range of diseases and that each case is like a puzzle that needs to be solved. Dr. Machemehl loves working with and meeting our patients, who she says bring unique perspectives and experiences to their relationship.

At Austin Neuromuscular Center, we treat a variety of neuromuscular conditions including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s Disease), Ataxia, Myasthenia Gravis, Peripheral Neuropathy, Myopathy, and other neuromuscular disorders.

Congratulations to both Dr. Yessar Hussain and Dr. Hannah Machemehl for being recognized as Super Doctors® Rising Stars in Texas!
