Call to Request an Appointment


The Multiple Sclerosis (MS) division of the Department of Neurology at Upstate Medical University provides diagnostic and management services for adults and older children with MS, possible MS, other demyelinating diseases (e.g. transverse myelitis, acute disseminated encephalomyelitis, neuromyelitis optica) and related disorders (e.g. sarcoid, vasculitis, CNS auto-mmune diseases.

State-of-the-art neuro-imaging (especially MRI) assists with accurate diagnosis as well as aiding MS management. Not only do we provide the latest in MS clinical care, but we also are actively engaged in clinical and translational MS research.

Our clinical research includes experimental clinical trials and epidemiological studies. Our translational research involves studying the mechanisms of MS disease development as well as the mechanisms of action of disease modifying agents.

Center for MS Comprehensive Care

MS Center Team

Center for Comprehensive MS Care logoUpstate Neurology has been officially recognized as a Center for Comprehensive MS Care through the National Multiple Sclerosis Society's Partners in MS Care program. 

Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Symptoms vary from person to person and range from numbness and tingling, to walking difficulties, fatigue, dizziness, pain, depression, blindness and paralysis.

The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are leading to better understanding and moving us closer to a world free of MS. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease. A study led by the National MS Society estimates that nearly 1 million people are living with MS in the United States; twice as many than previously thought.
