The UC Waddell Center for Multiple Sclerosis is dedicated to treating people who have multiple sclerosis while striving to understand mechanisms that underlie the disease. The center is supported in part by generous donations from the Greater Cincinnati community.
Waddell Center neurologists work as part of a multidisciplinary team that also includes neuropsychologists, a nurse practitioner, gastroenterologists, urologists, psychiatrists, physical and occupational therapists and social workers. Our clinicians and scientists combine comprehensive clinical care for patients with basic and applied research and innovative clinical trials.
The Waddell Center offers advanced diagnostic capabilities, which include complete diagnostic workups (with spinal fluid analysis and laboratory protocols) and advanced MRI technology and state-of-the-art imaging protocols. Your care team will provide thorough education, follow up with referring physicians as well as patient resources.
All Waddell Center physicians have advanced training in MS and neuroimmunology. These physician-scientists focus their clinical skills and research interests solely on MS and related disorders, including neuromyelitis optica, acute disseminated encephalomyelitis and other disorders that can mimic MS. Because of their comprehensive knowledge in the MS field, they have a deep understanding of the harmful mechanisms (both inflammatory and degenerative) that underlie the development of MS disability. This comprehensive knowledge optimizes treatment for individual patients with MS.
