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
- Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome
- Multifocal motor neuropathy
- Myasthenia gravis
- Stiff-person 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
- Convenient free parking
- Individual wireless tablets and reading materials
- Snacks and beverages
- Warming blankets
- Wireless internet access
Austin Neuromuscular Center is a Referral-Based Practice
- Before any appointment can be scheduled in our clinic, we will need a formal referral faxed to our office, 512-920-0142, directly from the referring provider. *This is not an insurance referral/authorization, this is a referral for services*
- The referral can come from a specialist or a primary care physician (PCP) and must include the reason for referral, complete patient demographic and insurance information, and all medical records to include test results that are related to the reason for referral
- If the patient has an HMO or POS insurance policy, we will not be able to schedule their appointment until we receive an insurance authorization. An insurance authorization is separate from the initial referral and must be obtained by the patient’s PCP. It is the patient’s responsibility to contact their PCP and have this faxed to our office.
- Once the complete referral and insurance authorization, if needed, is received it will be reviewed by our office and we will reach out to the patient to schedule the appropriate appointment type.
