Mellen Center for Multiple Sclerosis Treatment and Research was established in 1984, and is now one of the largest and most comprehensive programs for multiple sclerosis (MS) care and research worldwide.
Mellen Center for Multiple Sclerosis focuses on addressing physical, emotional, cognitive and rehabilitation needs of the MS patient and their family members through a team approach.
Mellen Center physicians are national leaders in basic and clinical research related to MS pathogenesis and medical management and have made major contributions in the development of drugs to control MS disease activity and progression. The Mellen Center is the largest comprehensive program for MS care and research worldwide, managing more than 8,000 patients and more than 21,000 total visits every year. Basic and clinical research conducted at Cleveland Clinic sheds new light on MS every year, moving us ever closer to better treatments and hopefully, one day soon, a cure.
Program highlights for the Mellen Center include:
- clinical research
- Integration of neurorehabilitation with spasticity management through the use of baclofen pumps and Botox injections
- Standard and investigational imaging provided through the 3 Tesla MR imaging facility, staffed by an expert team
- Latest pharmaceutical therapies delivered in a comfortable 12-chair infusion center
Central to our philosophy is the importance of meeting your social and psychological needs, as well as your complex physical needs. At the Mellen Center, you will experience a supportive, welcoming atmosphere and receive assistance in managing the different aspects of MS so you will not feel overwhelmed.
