Our RLS Experts

Drs. Christopher J. Earley and Richard Allen established The Johns Hopkins Center for Restless Legs Syndrome, located at the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. The Johns Hopkins Center for Restless Legs Syndrome has both a clinical and a research role.

Our clinical role includes education, managing, and treating patients with this disorder. Standard of care treatments, as well as research protocols that are not currently available in other centers, are part of the active clinical program.

Research is a very important component of The Johns Hopkins Center for Restless Legs Syndrome. Knowledge is the key to better understanding this disorder. Research is essential in coming to terms with what we do not know about this disorder. It is through research that we will hopefully one day bring about a cure for this disorder.

The Center for Restless Legs Syndrome is located in the Asthma and Allergy Center at the Johns Hopkins Bayview Campus.
