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.
Our team, which includes doctors, nurses, social workers, psychologists, and an occupational therapist, works together to focus on the whole person. Our neurologists have all completed fellowships in MS, which means care is provided by certified experts in the field.
We provide each patient with an individualized assessment and management plan that is based on your specific symptoms, the results of our neurological examination, and diagnostic testing. Our treatment plans rely on the latest research into MS. We also offer patients access to clinical trials.
After your treatment plan is in place, we follow up with you regularly to make sure you are adjusting well to your medications and other treatments. If you are experiencing side effects, we help manage them.
The MS Comprehensive Care Center cares for adults age 18 and older. Children and adolescents are cared for at our Pediatric Multiple Sclerosis Center.
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 help increase your independence by assisting you in performing everyday tasks in your home, at work, and during your 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. We also provide clutter management assistance for those who feel overwhelmed by tasks that require organization and decision making.
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 focus on the cognitive aspects of MS.
In addition, the MS Comprehensive Care Center offers 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 stay well informed on scientific progress.
Multiple Sclerosis Research
We are actively conducting research on a variety of aspects of MS. We are looking into improved medications and nonpharmacologic treatments. Our goal is to eventually find a cure for MS. If you are interested in getting involved with MS research, please contact our senior research coordinator, Ashley Clayton, 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.
We are designated as a Center for Comprehensive MS Care by the New York chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. In addition to our main location at 240 East 38th Street in Manhattan, we offer MS care in Brooklyn at NYU Langone Levit Medical and in Long Island at NYU Langone Huntington Medical Group.
