Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC) Clinic

Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC), a genetic disorder that affects 1 in 5,000 individuals, can affect many organs in the body, including the brain, heart, kidneys, lungs, and skin. TSC is a lifelong genetic disorder and condition in which complications and symptoms can arise at any time for patients. The most effective means of providing treatment and medical/clinical care that benefits each individual child is to use a team approach at the tuberous sclerosis complex clinic.

Established in 2015, the TSC Clinic brings together various specialists in one location so that TSC patients can be cared for and seen by several specialists in a single visit. This tuberous sclerosis complex center treats and follows children into adulthood. Team members for TSC patients include a pediatric neurologist, nurse manager, pediatric cardiologist, pediatric nephrologist, pediatric dermatologist, genetic counselor, and social worker. In addition, the team works closely with specialists in pediatric epilepsy, neuropsychology, neurosurgery, ophthalmology, and pulmonology. The clinic has been approved as a TSC Center by the Tuberous Sclerosis Complex Alliance, a national organization that fosters education, awareness, and research on this genetic condition.
