Helping families to create life plans to manage MS

What can you expect from an appointment with the MS Clinic at Saunders Medical Center? Hope and a Treatment Plan! 

Working with hundreds of individuals for several years, we take time with you to understand the disease, what causes it and how to live with it. 

Many are affected during the prime of life age 19-54. They are loving their career and taking care of their family. MS affects the entire family, not just the individual so it is common to meet with the family too!

We educate and empower our patients to be able to live their best life.

There are over 20 different treatment options available today! It is important to make an educated plan that fits your needs and lifestyle. Treatment can also prevent further problems. 

If lab work, an MRI, Infusion or physical therapy is needed—it is all right here in the same facility. We also have a social worker to assist the family in finding programs for meds, home health care, etc.

We give hope. And solutions. 


What is MS?
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a progressive neurodegenerative condition, where the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks the myelin sheath that insulates nerve fibers. This disrupts the electric signals traveling along the nerve fibers from the brain to the rest of the body and back, and leads to symptoms such as numbness and tingling, muscle spasms, walking difficulties, and pain. 

MS symptoms usually appear when a person is between the ages of 20 and 50. However, the disease can also occur in young children and the elderly.


"Multiple sclerosis may be a part of who you are, but it doesn't define you."

Awareness - Whatever It Takes 
MS Awareness Week March 7 - 13, 2021  | World MS Day May 30, 2021

Multiple sclerosis and the MS movement - everyone working to change lives as we drive toward a world free of MS- become better known each year. But more must be done to spread the word.

Every day, people living with MS do whatever it takes to move their lives forward despite the challenges. By sharing their stories, we help people better understand life with MS and become inspired to do whatever it takes to change the world for people living with MS. 

You can help ensure that more people understand what life with MS can be like and engage more people to do something about it, by following our media channels and sharing the stories of those living with MS, who move life forward every day and don't let MS define them.

"Multiple sclerosis may be a part of who you are, but it doesn't define you as a person. You are who you are, and MS can't take that away from you." - Clarissa, diagnosed in 2006. Explore powerful stories of people with MS.

Together we will do whatever it takes to change the world for people with MS.
