At The Madlyn Borelli Multiple Sclerosis Center, affiliated with Montefiore Einstein, we pride ourselves on providing comprehensive care for individuals with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). We offer a full array of services to address the often complex needs of people with MS and to help keep our patients as healthy as possible.
Led by Christopher Langston, MD, medical director of The Madlyn Borelli Multiple Sclerosis Center at Montefiore Nyack Hospital, patients can feel confident that they will receive the highest quality of expertise and commitment under his personalized care. The Center offers FLAIR* (Fluid-Attenuated Inversion Recovery) imaging, which enhances the utility of MRI for diagnosing MS and helps to distinguish MS from mimicking conditions (i.e. migraine, neurosarcoid, and microvascular changes from conditions like high blood pressure, high cholesterol and smoking), providing increased diagnostic certainty. FLAIR* allows us to see veins at the center of MS lesions, and therefore to distinguish lesions caused by MS from lesions caused by mimicking conditions. This technology further supports our ability to provide the most comprehensive services for individuals with MS.
The Madlyn Borelli Multiple Sclerosis Center goes beyond treatment by offering rehabilitation services, including physical and occupational therapy as well as support and educational programs for patients and their families. As a result of our extensive services, The Madlyn Borelli Multiple Sclerosis Center is a designated Comprehensive Center for MS Care through the National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s Partners in MS Care program.
