The multidisciplinary centres

Multiple Sclerosis Clinic

Multiple sclerosis

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an inflammatory and degenerative neurological disease of the central nervous system.

It generally starts between the age of 20 and 40. The cause is still unknown, even though certain factors of risk have been identified.

It is estimated that there are more than 10,000 patients with MS in Belgium.

Our specialists and paramedics

 

Why is there a Multiple Sclerosis Clinic?

According to the recommendations of the European Academy of Neurology, the treatment for patients with MS requires a specific care in a multidisciplinary centre given the complexity of the pathology and its treatments.

We actually think that patients with MS should benefit from medical and paramedical care that is frequently updated and fully personalised.

 

Personalised care

At the MS Clinic, we aim to offer our patients a personalised care, according to the following priority areas:

  • Promote early diagnosis
  • Allow patients to access every existing therapy at the right moment
  • Select the best therapeutic strategies
  • Place the patient at the centre of our concerns and consult them regarding the mangement of their disease
  • Put emphasis on information, support and guidance
  • Offer close surveillance and minimise the inherent risks of immunotherapies
  • Scrupulously evaluate the efficacy of the treatment prescribed
  • Contribute to pharmacovigilance ('drugs safety')
  • Ensure continuous follow-up
  • Help with the daily management of the disease
  • Create care paths with specialized caregivers
  • Integrate their skills
  • Facilitate access to external administrative and social support
  • Improve professional and social reintegration in the interest of physical, psychological and cognitive comfort

 

The team

The multidisciplinary team, that comprises neurologists, psychologists, a sex therapist, physiotherapists, uro-gynaecological physiotherapists, speech therapists, and nurses, offers a holistic patient care from the earliest to the most advanced stages.

It is a real care pathway from diagnosis to rehabilitation, including high-activity of immunotherapy.

Every patient is unique and requires specific and personalised care.
