About The Nerve and Muscle Center of Texas
The Nerve and Muscle Center of Texas offers comprehensive services for neuromuscular disorders. The center is located in the 6624 Fannin Medical Tower, the hallmark of the Texas Medical Center which is the largest medical center in the world. The Medical Director, Aziz Shaibani, MD, is affiliated with the Baylor St. Luke's Medical Center, a major teaching hospital of the Texas Medical Center. 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. Patients are also referred from most of the southern states and from other countries like Mexico, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Turkey, and Israel.
