We offer a wide range of diagnostic and treatment services for people with multiple sclerosis.
At the Multiple Sclerosis Comprehensive Care Center at NYU Langone, we understand that multiple sclerosis (MS) affects each person in unique ways. That’s why we are dedicated to providing outstanding care focused on your needs and to promoting wellness in people of all ages, and at all stages, of MS and related disorders.
Through diagnostic testing and a neurological examination, we develop a personalized management plan. Our goal is to maximize each person’s potential and minimize symptoms.
In addition to providing patient care, our team of MS experts is at the forefront of research into new treatments for MS and is aiming to find therapies that improve function and end the disease. We also care for patients who have been diagnosed with related conditions, such as neuromyelitis optica.
At the MS Comprehensive Care Center, we care for adults age 18 and older. Children and adolescents receive care at our Pediatric Multiple Sclerosis Center, which is housed at the same location and is part of Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital of New York at NYU Langone.
Therapy and Rehabilitation Support
We ensure that all of your healthcare needs are addressed, including issues that affect your everyday activities and quality of life.
Occupational therapists work to increase your independence by helping you perform everyday tasks in your home, at work, and during leisure activities. Our occupational therapists give you strategies for managing fatigue and stress, completing self-care and household tasks, and creating a safe home environment.
Our therapists also provide clutter management assistance for those who feel overwhelmed by tasks that require organization and decision-making. We also work with a urologist, who addresses any bladder symptoms associated with MS.
Our social workers provide one-on-one counseling. If you are experiencing symptoms of depression, we refer you to our psychologists, who can provide counseling, if needed. Psychologists and neuropsychologists also focus on the cognitive aspects of MS.
In addition, experts at the MS Comprehensive Care Center offer a variety of specialized groups and programs for people living with MS—and their families and friends—to help them cope with the disease and its symptoms and to stay informed about scientific progress.
Multiple Sclerosis Research and Education
We are actively researching a variety of aspects of MS, including better medications and nonpharmacologic treatments. Our goal is to eventually find a cure for MS. If you are interested in getting involved with MS research or participating in a clinical trial, please contact our senior research coordinator at 646-501-7523.
We are also educating tomorrow's healthcare professionals in the fight against MS through our multiple sclerosis fellowships in clinical care and research.
In addition to our main location at 240 East 38th Street in Manhattan, we offer MS care in Brooklyn at NYU Langone Levit Medical, NYU Lutheran Medical Arts Pavilion, and NYU Lutheran Family Health Centers—Shore Road. On Long Island, we care for patients at NYU Langone Huntington Medical Group.
We are designated as a Center for Comprehensive MS Care by the New York chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. For more information about adult services or to make an appointment, please call 646-501-7500.
