Multiple Sclerosis Clinic
Nationally recognized MS Center takes multidisciplinary approach to treating patients
Directed by Florian Thomas, M.D., Ph.D., a leading expert in the treatment of multiple sclerosis, the nationally recognized Saint Louis University Multiple Sclerosis Center takes a multidisciplinary approach to treating patients. Affiliated with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, the center's staff understands that patients with MS may have difficulty coming in for an appointment, particularly if they have reached a stage where they can no longer drive themselves. A specialized MS center helps patients meet with a variety of physicians in one day, ensuring that they can get the most out of their appointments.
In addition, Saint Louis University physical and occupational therapists who are trained by the MS Society teach a six-week wellness program to individuals with MS, which offers practical strategies to maintain control over their lives.
MS is a devastating illness, but there are many options available. With appropriate treatment from a neurologist who ideally specializes in treating multiple sclerosis, people are able to live active lives for a number of years.
The Saint Louis University Multiple Sclerosis Clinic sees patients from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Mondays and from noon to 5 p.m. on Tuesdays at the SLUCare Doctors Office Building.
