The ALS Research and Treatment Center provides comprehensive, multidisciplinary care for patients with ALS and related motor neuron diseases. The Center is located at UHCC and sees patients on a weekly basis.
We provide patients with comprehensive care involving multiple specialties, so that patients can receive many services at one visit. We are the largest ALS Center in New York outside of New York City, and are a referral center for central and western New York State. In addition, we are one of only a handful of centers that have received certification by both the Muscular Dystrophy Association and the ALS Association . The ALS Clinic at Upstate is part of the ALS Association's national network of Certified Treatment Centers of Excellence. We provide evidence-based, multidisciplinary ALS care and services in a supportive atmosphere with an emphasis on hope and quality of life. The Center is nationally recognized for its research into possible treatments for ALS, and patients are given the opportunity to participate in a variety of clinical trials.
