MDA/Myotonic Dystrophy
Clinic

The Myotonic Dystrophy Clinic at the Houston Methodist Neurological Institute was developed to address and minimize the challenging aspects of myotonic dystrophy, the most common form of adult-onset muscular dystrophy. This multi-systemic disorder causes progressive muscle weakness in the arms, hands, hips and lower legs. People with myotonic dystrophy may also experience early cataracts, heart arrhythmias, cognitive problems and hormonal changes. We help to improve survival rates and patients' quality of life, in addition to fostering research into predicting outcomes of this disease.

Our clinic is staffed by a team that includes neurologists, cardiologists, pulmonologists, respiratory therapists, sleep specialists, nutritionists, social workers, genetic counselors, physical and occupational therapists, and home health agency vendors . It offers a range of laboratory and diagnostic testing to assess patients for related diseases.
