What is Multiple Sclerosis?
Multiple sclerosis is a complex disease that affects the central nervous system (brain, spinal cord, and optic pathways). It is characterized by relapses (neurologic symptoms which appear rapidly over a few days and then improve to some extent over weeks or months), and remissions (periods of time that are without new symptoms). The disease is unpredictable and some people experience a variety of symptoms that might worsen (progress) over time.

What is a Multiple Sclerosis Center of Excellence (MSCoE)?
The Multiple Sclerosis Centers of Excellence are congressionally mandated clinical centers which are distributed throughout the United States at centrally located VA Medical Centers. By centralizing locating these centers, veterans have relatively easy access to a large VA Medical Center with many resources to provide excellent care.
The Memphis VA Medical Center is proud to serve as a member of the MS Centers for Excellence providing services for the MidSouth Healthcare Network (VISN 9). We look forward to serving our veterans from the Louisville KY, Lexington KY, Huntington WV, Memphis TN, Nashville TN, Murfreesboro TN, and Johnson City (Mountain Home) TN areas.
