COVID Hotline

The health and safety of our communities remain top priority as we continue to work tirelessly to minimize the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). We are actively taking measures in doing this by carefully screening each patient for covid symptoms before they enter our facility, having our healthcare workers wear masks, and sanitizing all of our work areas with hospital-grade disinfectant. If you are ill with fever, cough or shortness of breath or have been exposed to a person with suspected or confirmed COVID symptoms, call 1-800-458-4559 to be connected to our CHRISTUS COVID Hotline.

Our Approach

The Neuroscience Institute’s board-certified, fellowship-trained neuromuscular medicine subspecialists are committed to improving the quality of life of people with neuromuscular diseases. Respected for their comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach, our physicians are experts in the evaluation and management of complex neuromuscular diseases known to be difficult to diagnose and treat.

Advanced care and technology

State-of-the-art technology and advanced diagnostic testing techniques enable our specialists to design personalized treatment plans based on each patient’s lifestyle, goals and physical, emotional and spiritual needs. Although our patients are typically adults age 18 and older, we also provide specialized pediatric neuromuscular care.

Neuromuscular diseases are complex disorders affecting the nerves that allow you to control your voluntary muscles. Your nerve cells, also called neurons, transmit messages to the muscles. When neurons break down, become unhealthy or die, communication between your nervous system and muscles is disrupted, causing muscles to weaken and waste away. Cramps, muscle twitching, pain, joint problems and movement problems can result.

Comprehensive neuromusclar care

Many neuromuscular diseases are genetic. Others are caused by immune system disorders. Because most have no cure, our treatment goal is to improve symptoms, increase mobility and lengthen life.

We treat the following conditions:

  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Chronic demyelinating inflammatory polyneuropathy (CIDP)
  • Guillain-Barré syndrome
  • Muscular dystrophy
  • Myasthenia gravis (MG)
  • Peripheral neuropathies
  • Facet Syndrome
