About the Center for Dysphagia and Swallowing Disorders
The Center for Dysphagia and Swallowing Disorders at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas, is an unparalleled collaboration between three unique specialties with dedicated interests in dysphagia. We provide a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach with a team of otolaryngologists, thoracic surgeons, gastroenterologists, radiologists, speech therapists and nutritionists to evaluate and treat patients who have difficulty swallowing food or liquids. A commitment to research, advancing medical education, and measurement of outcomes allows us to bring best-practice and state-of-the-art technologies to our patients.
Led by co-directors Kenneth W. Altman, M.D., Ph.D., Lubin Fernando Arevalo, M.D., and Shawn Groth, M.D., the center strives to establish a diagnosis quickly and we work carefully with each patient to establish an individualized treatment plan.
