Multiple Sclerosis Center

 

At the MS Center, we deal with every facet of your illness. Working with you and/or your doctor, a team of specialists from Temple University Neurology designs a treatment plan adapted precisely to your needs. They know how to listen to you and respond to your questions.

 

The doctors on the MS Center team communicate with each other and set goals for your treatment through team discussion.

 

The MS Center conducts the most advanced diagnostic tests, which makes it possible to locate MS scar tissue in different parts of your nervous system. Your doctors will watch the disease over time and measure improvement through regular exams.

 

A full complement of medical therapies targeted to your MS-related problems (such as vision or hearing loss or urinary difficulties) helps assure that you will continue to lead an active, productive life. And research projects at the Center give you access to lesser-known but effective new medications.

 

Physical and occupational therapies provide for your total functional needs at the new rehabilitation facility at Temple University Hospital.


Psychotherapy and antidepressant medications can help you through the emotional stress that can often occur while coping with this unpredictable disease. Staff psychologists (together with urologists) can also help you overcome sexual difficulties related to MS.
