Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and Neuroimmunology

Multiple sclerosis (MS) can be difficult to diagnose if you experience unusual symptoms or if you have a disease with similar warning signs. Today, there is no single, definitive laboratory test to confirm MS. An MS diagnosis can only be made by conducting a comprehensive medical history, a detailed neurological examination, MRI imaging and other tests to exclude other potential causes. In our certified Electromyography (EMG) lab, we can provide expert assessments to help diagnose neuromuscular disorders.

At the Multiple Sclerosis and Neuroimmunology Center, we focus on all aspects of the disease, including:

  • Diagnosis
  • Clinical trials
  • Brain imaging
  • Laboratory research

Autoimmune Diseases 

We also treat and manage autoimmune diseases including:

  • Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM)
  • Autoimmune encephalitis (AE)
  • Clinically isolated syndrome (CIS)
  • Neuromyelitis optica (NMO) spectrum disorders
  • Optic neuritis
  • Spasticity
  • Transverse myelitis

How We Diagnose

  • Electroencephalogram (EEG)
  • Electromyogram (EMG)
  • Lumbar puncture
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Optical coherence tomography (OCT)
  • Visual evoked potentials (VEP)
  • Visual field testing

How We Treat

  • Baclofen pump installation
  • Botulinum toxin injection
  • Clinical trials
  • Electric nerve stimulation
  • Functional capacity evaluation
  • Infusion center
  • MS disease modifying therapies (injection, infusion and oral)
  • Psychological support
  • Wheelchair custom fitting
