North America’s Third Largest MS Clinic
The Wayne State University Multiple Sclerosis Center at Harper University Hospital is the largest and most comprehensive Multiple Sclerosis Center in Michigan and one of the largest MS clinics in North America. The MS Center provides care to more than 3,500 MS patients — some from other countries (Canada and Italy) and seven U.S. states (Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, New York, Georgia and Florida). The clinic is home to the world's largest study of African Americans with MS, with 600 African-Americans with MS enrolled in the MS Clinic.
MS Center physicians are all faculty members at the Wayne State University School of Medicine. Many of them are nationally recognized for their research and clinical expertise in multiple sclerosis and related central nervous system disorders, including:
- Transverse Myelitis
- Neuromyelitis Optica (NMO) or Devic’s disease
- Pediatric multiple sclerosis
- ADEM or acute disseminated encephalomyelitis
Additionally, the MS Center specialists at Harper University Hospital provide a large number of consultations for patients seeking a second opinion for:
- High risk pregnancy multiple sclerosis management
- Rapidly progressive multiple sclerosis
- Abnormal brain MRI scans
A commitment to clinical and basic research means MS Center patients benefit from the latest knowledge and innovations. And, with two dedicated MRI machines — including a high–resolution, 4 Tesla MRI and a 1.5 Tesla high-resolution magnet — Harper patients always have access to the most advanced imaging and research technology.
