John L. Trotter MS Center:    neuro.wustl.edu/research/mscenter
MS is a disease that attacks the white matter of the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord). Thus it can cause a wide variety of symptoms which vary from patient to patient. Different affected regions require different specialties to help the neurologist help their patients. The physicians at the John L. Trotter MS Center regularly refer patients to specialists from many disciplines in order to provide the comprehensive care required to optimize physical function. Some of the more common disciplines include: Urology, Psychiatry, Psychology and NeuroPsychology, Physiatry, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Nursing, Radiology, Social Services, Spiritual care and Internal Medicine. We also work closely with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. The neurologists at Washington University have selected experts from each of these fields and others who have become familiar with the special needs of MS patients as part of our team.
