BIOGRAPHY

Vita Kaplan, MD was born in Kiev, Ukraine. She immigrated to the United States with her family at the age of 16, and settled in Madison, Wisconsin. After completing high school, she went to the University of Wisconsin-Madison and received a degree in Zoology. She took a year off before medical school, participating in Americorps in California, working with Community Clinics and the underserved population. After completing Medical School at the University of Wisconsin in 2001, she was happy to move closer to the mountains and did her Neurology Residency at the University of Colorado. After a few years of private practice in Denver, she relocated to Salt Lake City where her husband joined the faculty at the University of Utah Urology Department. Dr Kaplan has always had special interest in Multiple Sclerosis and started working at Rocky Mountain MS Clinic in October of 2008. She sees patients with MS and with general neurologic problems, such as Headaches, Myasthenia Gravis, and epilepsy, to name a few. In addition to working in a clinic, she consults on hospital patients at LDS Hospital, and does some procedures, such as EMG/NCVs, EEGs, Botulinum toxin injections, and trigger point injections. She is an Investigator on several research trials at Rocky Mountain MS Research Group. In her time outside of work she is busy being a mom to two little kids and has been enjoying all the wonderful outdoor activities Utah has to offer.
