Dedicated to Improving Your Quality of Life

At the University of Chicago Medicine Multiple Sclerosis Program, we’re committed to providing exceptional care. Our multidisciplinary team will develop a personalized care plan that addresses the full spectrum of physical, mental and emotional challenges you may face.

A Personalized Approach to Multiple Sclerosis Care

Because multiple sclerosis (MS) can mimic other diseases, it's important to seek care from a team that has the experience and knowledge to accurately diagnose and treat it. Through clinical experience, skill and advanced testing, we establish both a diagnosis and treatment course for your condition, such as relapsing-remitting MS or primary progressive MS. If you’ve already been diagnosed with MS and need help managing your symptoms, we will examine the progression of your disease before recommending a course of action.

Comprehensive Treatment Options

We understand the different symptoms of MS and which treatment option is best for each symptom. Through a collaborative approach, our neurologists will work with other specialists to create a personalized care plan that addresses all of your needs.

We offer several treatments to slow the progression of MS and manage symptoms, including:

  • Disease-modifying medications
  • Steroids
  • Enrollment in clinical trials for appropriate candidates 
  • Botulinum toxin (Botox) injections
  • Intrathecal baclofen pump (ITB therapy)
  • Spasticity and pain management 
  • Deep brain stimulation (DBS)
  • Rehabilitation services
  • Lifestyle adjustments
  • Radiofrequency lesioning

Our multiple sclerosis experts conduct cutting-edge research and integrate the latest therapies and medications into their treatment plans to offer the most advanced and comprehensive care available. In addition, we have access to clinical trials of promising new treatments that are not widely available.
