MS & Neuroimmunology Program

At A Glance: Our Multiple Sclerosis Program

If you’ve been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) or another neuroimmunological disease, or are in the process of confirming a diagnosis, we understand the range of emotions you’re bound to experience. Because multiple sclerosis isn’t fully understood, those diagnosed with the disease can face more unknowns than certainties—one of the most intimidating parts of a neuroimmunological diagnosis.

And yet, here’s what we do know: Multiple sclerosis affects multiple areas of the brain and spinal cord, leaving lesions that interfere with the ability of the nervous system to send and receive signals. A person with MS may experience trouble walking, muscle stiffness or spasms, weakness, vision problems, or numbness and tingling sensations, among others.

These are the same symptoms our thoughtful, thorough team of MS specialists hope to help treat. Our team works tirelessly to educate and empower you as a partner in your care, while we look toward new or more effective treatments. Relying on our collective clinical knowledge, state-of-the-art facilities, and access to clinical trials, we make it our mission to impart a newfound sense of purpose and confidence in light of the uncertainties.

We are a National Multiple Sclerosis Society Center for Comprehensive Care.

Clinical Trials

As an institution dedicated to clinical research, our goal is to offer each patient the option to participate in a clinical trial. These studies help us learn more about ambiguous and challenging diseases like MS, and make progress toward developing better therapies.

Barrow is also a member site of the North American Imaging in MS Cooperative (NAIMS)

Rare Diseases
