Neuroimmunology/Multiple Sclerosis Center

The Rochester Multiple Sclerosis Center, located at Strong Memorial Hospital, provides comprehensive diagnostic and therapeutic services for multiple sclerosis (MS) and related demyelinating disorders and inflammatory disorders of the brain and spinal cord.

Multiple Sclerosis Unit

To diagnose MS, a neurologist conducts a complete medical history and neurological examination to rule out other neurological conditions. The neurologist may work with a radiologist to use medical imaging such as computed tomography (CT) scanning or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to view the lesions caused by MS. Laboratory tests that examine the patient’s spinal fluid may help diagnose MS.
Right now, there is no known cure for MS. To prevent relapses, MS can be treated with medication. In addition, physical therapy, speech therapy, and occupational therapy may be helpful for some patients.

A team of four neurologists and three nurses with expertise in MS provide patient care. People with MS may be eligible to participate in selected clinical trials because of the center’s extensive clinical research activities.
