Clinic Overview


Award-winning, team-based services for MS patients nationwide

The UW Medicine Multiple Sclerosis Center at Northwest Hospital in Seattle is an award-winning specialty center where a team of expert providers addresses patients’ individual needs, including accurate diagnosis, differentiation of MS from other mimicking conditions (for instance, neuromyelitis optica, optic neuritis, transverse myelitis), treatment, rehabilitation and symptom management for optimal outcome and well-being.

Our team consists of neurologists, a rehabilitation physician, rehabilitation psychologists, a nurse practitioner, a vocational counselor, a social worker, MS-trained nurses, infusion nurses and a pharmacist. Patients also have access to UW Medicine professionals in other subspecialties, such as neuropsychology, physical and occupational therapy and nutrition. Our facility includes an on-site, dedicated infusion suite and pharmacy as well as on-site MRI that facilitates same-day imaging for patients with urgent symptoms or traveling long distances.

Our center has been an NIH-funded, national leader in multiple sclerosis research for over 40 years, and patients interested in research routinely have the opportunity to participate in clinical studies. The MS Center also trains future leaders in multiple sclerosis care through its physician fellowship program.
