The Multiple Sclerosis Clinic at Newton Wellesley Hospital treats patients who have been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) — an inflammatory disease of the central nervous system. The goal of the Multiple Sclerosis Clinic is to help patients reach maximum independence through healthy lifestyle adjustments, medications, rehabilitative treatments and clinical trials.
We believe in a team approach. In addition to providing a comprehensive neurological evaluation and interpretation of diagnostic studies, we involve nursing, physical and occupational therapy, and social work assessments as needed. We also work closely with our urologists and ophthalmologists.
A multidisciplinary team helps patients manage symptoms, which can include vision problems, muscle weakness, difficulty with coordination, loss of sensation, concentration and memory problems and bladder issues.
