The hallmark of a comprehensive neurofibromatosis center
is the immediate availability of a wide variety of specialties
and sub-specialties, working in concert to provide the
most appropriate, effective, and caring treatment program
possible. Under the clear coordination of the co-directors
of the Center, scores of physicians, therapists, technicians
and other health professionals offer the most up-to-date
care in dermatology, ophthalmology, neuro-ophthalmology,
ocular plastic and reconstructive surgery, otolaryngology
(ENT), adult and pediatric neurological surgery, adult
and pediatric neurology, adult and pediatric orthopaedic
surgery, and pain management, among other services.
