Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Program

About Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

MS is a chronic disease of the central nervous system, which includes the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves. MS attacks myelin, a material that supports nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord.

Canada has one of the highest rates of MS in the world, with 12 Canadians diagnosed every day. While there are treatments, they do not prevent mounting disability and reduction in quality of life.

Our Services

We provide specialized care and support to over 4,000 patients from across Canada.

Using an interdisciplinary approach, our researchers are studying MS in all its aspects and at every stage: from brain imaging to the basic biology of nerve cells to immune response.

At The Neuro, transitional research is integrated with clinical programs to translate discoveries into novel therapeutics.

We offer:

  • Consultation and monitoring of patients already diagnosed with multiple sclerosis
  • Investigation for the diagnosis of suspected cases
  • Multidisciplinary staff of neurologists, nurse specialists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and social workers
  • Multidisciplinary approach ensures the best care for patients suffering from reduced mobility, and for families trying to cope with the needs of their loved one
