At our Pediatric Multiple Sclerosis and Neuroimmunology clinic, we care for children and adolescents with immune-mediated diseases of the central nervous system, including:

  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (NMOSD)
  • Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM)
  • Anti-MOG antibody-associated disease
  • Optic neuritis
  • Transverse myelitis
  • Other central nervous system inflammatory/autoimmune conditions

The needs of pediatric patients are unique from a biologic, developmental, demographic, and psychosocial aspect. To provide our patients with the most comprehensive care possible, our team is comprised of adult and pediatric neurologists, neuropsychologists, neuroradiologists, neuro-ophthalmologists, neuropsychologists, as well as rehabilitative medicine and movement disorder specialists.

We aim to provide education and support to children, teens, and their families with multiple sclerosis and related diseases, and to ensure a smooth transition of care between pediatric and adult care.
