(YorkPedia Editorial):- New York City, New York Jun 11, 2021 (Issuewire.com) – Dr. Calkwood is a board-certified neurologist and fellowship-trained neuro-ophthalmologist specializing in the comprehensive treatment of multiple sclerosis. In practice with Minneapolis Clinic of Neurology, he sees patients at the Schapiro Center for Multiple Sclerosis & the Center for Neuro-Vision Disorders, and Neuro-Visual Diagnostic Laboratory in Golden Valley, Minnesota.
Comprehensive care for the MS patient is the only model that makes sense to Dr. Calkwood, and the need for a comprehensive treatment approach is increasing. In his more than 20 years of experience treating people with MS, he has seen the development of effective therapies and research leading to a new understanding of MS.
“Our current treatments can be complicated and have side effects. Evolving therapies are even more complex and in some cases risky. These factors, and the exponential increase in knowledge of MS management and treatments, place an even greater premium on selecting an experienced team of MS specialized nurses and physicians for your care. With this explosion of knowledge, the challenge for an MS clinician is to distill the science of MS into the practical treatment of the individual with MS” expressed the doctor.
For a healthcare professional, the demands of caring for people with MS can be challenging at times. Dr. Calkwood finds the long-term relationships he develops with his MS patients to be the most personally rewarding and fulfilling of his entire career.

He then went on to perform his internship in internal medicine at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center in 1988, his residency in neurology at Tulane University Medical Center in 1991, and his fellowship in neuro-ophthalmology at the University of Iowa Hospital and Clinics in 1992.

Neurology is a branch of medicine dealing with disorders of the nervous system. Neurologists are licensed medical specialists who diagnose and treat disorders that affect the brain, spinal cord, nerves, and muscles of patients. They examine a patient’s mental and physical status, conduct medical tests and scans, and evaluate the results to diagnose and treat the patient.
Neuro-ophthalmology is a subspecialty of both neurology and ophthalmology. Neuro-ophthalmologists specialize in vision problems that relate to the nervous system. Such issues include vision problems due to brain injuries or diseases, including trauma, a stroke, or an infection.
