About This Center
UT Health Austin’s Multiple Sclerosis and Neuroimmunology Center diagnoses, treats, and manages immune-mediated neurologic diseases (a disease in which the body’s immune system attacks the central nervous system) in adult patients (18 years and older) with Multiple Sclerosis. We are committed to working with you to best understand and effectively manage your chronic neurologic illness with the ultimate goal of optimizing your psychological, behavioral, and mental health.
At UT Health Austin, we take a multidisciplinary approach to your care. This means you will benefit from the expertise of multiple specialists across a variety of disciplines caring for you in one place to avoid having to schedule multiple appointments with providers at locations all over the city. The Multiple Sclerosis and Neuroimmunology Center care team includes neurologists, psychiatrists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, social workers, and more, who work together to help you get back to the things in your life that matter most to you.
We collaborate with our colleagues at the Dell Medical School and The University of Texas at Austin to utilize the latest research, diagnostic, and treatment techniques, allowing us to provide you with preventive methods that promote health and wellness. Advanced imaging and lab testing are also available on-site if needed.
Once our clinic receives a referral from your referring provider, members of the Multiple Sclerosis and Neuroimmunology Center care team will identify any existing records of treatment in the UT Health Austin System and communicate with your referring provider to obtain needed medical records and other information. If you have received medical treatment from a provider other than your referring provider, your care team will contact you to receive a written Authorization to Receive Medical Records from your other provider(s). The Multiple Sclerosis and Neuroimmunology Center generally will not schedule your initial appointment until it has received all relevant records. Once all records have been received and reviewed, the UTHA Access Center will contact you to schedule your initial appointment.
