About Us

The Waddell Center is recognized by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society as the regional referral center for MS in the Greater Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky area. It is also a certified member of the National MS Consortium.

Waddell Center clinicians and scientists integrate comprehensive clinical care for patients with basic and translational research and innovative clinical trials.

The Center offers advanced diagnostic capabilities, which include complete diagnostic workups (with spinal fluid analysis and laboratory protocols) and advanced MRI technology and state-of-the-art imaging protocols. The Center also provides thorough patient education and followup with referring physicians.

All Waddell Center physicians have advanced training in MS and neuroimmunology. These physician-scientists focus their clinical skills and research interests solely on MS and related disorders, including neuromyelitis optica, acute disseminated encephalomyelitis and other disorders that can mimic MS. Because of their comprehensive knowledge in the MS field, they have a deep understanding of the harmful mechanisms (both inflammatory and degenerative) that underlie the development of MS disability. This comprehensive knowledge optimizes treatment for individual patients with MS.

Waddell Center neurologists work as part of a multidisciplinary team that also includes neuropsychologists, a nurse practitioner, gastroenterologists, urologists, psychiatrists, physical and occupational therapists and social workers.
