SLUCare Multiple Sclerosis Clinic

Offering Expertise in MS Diagnosis and Treatment at Any Stage of the Disease

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a complex autoimmune disease that attacks the central nervous system, impairing muscle function, bowel and bladder function, vision, hearing, speech and more. MS is most commonly diagnosed in women between 20 and 40 years of age, although it can affect men and women of various ages.

SLUCare Neurology helps patients obtain an accurate diagnosis through careful evaluation, distinguishing between symptoms of multiple sclerosis and diseases with similar profiles, such as neuromyelitic optica (Devic’s disease) or other autoimmune conditions affecting the brain.

Developing a personalized MS treatment plan

Today’s patients have a greater range of MS treatment options than any previous generation. There are more FDA-approved medications than ever before, each with its own unique profile to modify and slow the course of MS.

SLUCare helps patients understand the differences in today’s MS medications and can help you determine which approaches may be most beneficial for you. Our goal is always to listen to your concerns and goals for treatment and to develop a treatment plan tailored to your needs.

In addition to medication, SLUCare Neurology coordinates all other elements of a comprehensive MS treatment plan, including:

Engaging patients in the decision-making process improves communication, encourages feelings of empowerment and control over the disease, and enhances comfort level with both the treatment plan and outcome. It’s personalized care backed by the resources of an academic medical practice.
