Multiple Sclerosis


Multiple sclerosis (MS) is one of the most common chronic inflammatory diseases of the brain and spinal cord. The disease progresses in phases, often remitting and then relapsing, and sometimes it can be severely disabling. Some symptoms typically experienced by patients with MS include visual disturbances, paralysis, and emotional and coordination disorders. In MS, the immune system attacks the nerve fibers, nerves, and the myelin sheath, which is the protective sheath of the nerves. As a result, the signals between the brain and the rest of the body are disrupted.


MS is not diagnosed through a single specific test. Your medical team will instead rule out other conditions that may produce similar signs and symptoms and conclude on MS through a differential diagnosis. They may recommend blood and medical imaging tests (like magnetic resonance imaging, MRI), or a lumbar puncture as part of this process.


Although there is no cure for MS, early diagnosis and management help alleviate most symptoms you may be experiencing and prevent the disease from rapidly progressing. Individually tailored treatment enables patients to remain independent in everyday life and maintain their quality of life.


At the GMI, a multidisciplinary team of renowned neurologists guides each patient through their entire journey, from their diagnostic work-up to their treatment and post-treatment care. 

The GMI team will never offer a simple “one size fits all” approach to any patient. We believe each patient’s case is as individual as they are and strive to find the best solution for each of our patients, taking their specific case and diagnosis, their lifestyle, and choices into account. 

We believe each of our patients is more than their diagnosis. That’s why our dedicated paramedics team supports patients with neurological disorders by offering more than just expert medical care. We offer psychological help, integrative medical services (including yoga classes, and acupuncture), physiotherapy, occupational therapy, and rehabilitation services, and have a GMI Patient Advocacy Program

Adhering to our passion for innovation, and desire to progress the medical field, the GMI Department of Neurology both initiates and participates in several clinical trials in which the most modern and advanced treatment concepts are tested.
