Multiple Sclerosis

The Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Center is a subspecialty center of the University of North Carolina’s Department of Neurology. The MS Center provides comprehensive care for patients with MS. Our facility offers state-of-the-art diagnostic resonance imaging studies that include 3-Tesla and functional MRIs, laboratory testing of blood and cerebrospinal fluid, visual evoked potential studies and comprehensive ophthalmological and urological care. In addition to treatment with approved immunomodulatory and immunosuppressive therapies, the UNC MS program conducts clinical trials for new therapies targeting early phases of the disease and breakthrough disease activity in patients treated with first line immunomodulatory therapies.

Our team is committed to providing high quality comprehensive care to the people of North Carolina and the Mid-Atlantic region. Multiple sclerosis treatments are provided to appropriate patients by the multiple sclerosis team. Care is provided in the outpatient setting of the multiple sclerosis clinic as well as inpatient setting of the Neuroscience Hospital, if necessary. In addition to the close collaboration with the neurology faculty, Dr. Silva Markovic-Plese and Luigi Troiani, PA-C work closely with members of the neurosurgery service, and diagnostic neuroradiology services.
