The UCSF Regional Pediatric Multiple Sclerosis Center is the only center of its kind on the West Coast. We have been designated by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society as a center of excellence for comprehensive care of children and adolescents with multiple sclerosis (MS) and related diseases, such as acute demyelinating encephalomyelitis (ADEM) and Devic's disease. As part of a national network of six centers sponsored by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, we have access to the latest information, research and treatments.
To provide patients with the most comprehensive care possible, our team includes adult and pediatric neurologists, pediatric nurse practitioners, neuropsychologists, social workers, physical therapists and speech therapists. In addition, we work with scientists and geneticists who research MS to better understand the condition and improve treatment.
We collaborate with other institutions to evaluate and treat patients and work with our adult Multiple Sclerosis Center to ensure a smooth transition of care when our young patients become adults.

The Multiple Sclerosis Center is part of the UCSF Pediatric Brain Center, which brings together doctors from all disciplines related to brain health in children. We are passionate about collaborating with each other, our patients and their families to provide the best possible care for each child.
Our experts are world-class pediatric specialists in neurology, neurosurgery, neurocritical care, neurogenetics, neuro-oncology, rehabilitation, neuroradiology, neuropsychology and psychiatry. By working as a team we are able to reach the right diagnosis and treatment quickly, getting our patients on the road to recovery and bringing peace of mind to parents.
