Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic, often disabling disease that attacks the central nervous system made up of the brain, spinal cord, and cranial nerves.
People with MS must deal with a wide range of symptoms including:
- memory and cognition problems
- sensory changes
Due to the wide range of symptoms and disability experienced by people with MS, this group of patients is best served through a multidisciplinary clinic care model.
Banner Good Samaritan’s MS Clinic uses a multi-disciplinary approach towards the treatment and management of MS. The multidisciplinary team includes:
- neurologist specializing in the treatment of MS
- physical therapist
- occupational therapist
- speech language pathologist
- social worker
- representative from the MS Society
The MS clinic team develops a comprehensive and individualized plan of care for each patient and this is communicated to the patient during and after the clinic visit.
The clinic case manager arranges for any services or therapies recommended during the clinic visit. This comprehensive, individualized approach towards patient care is a hallmark of the Neuroscience Clinic.
