UAB Tuberous Sclerosis Clinic
Birmingham, AL 35233
The UAB Tuberous Sclerosis Clinic was the first of its kind in the Southeast, serving patients with an established or suspected diagnosis of this complex genetic disease. We employ an interdisciplinary team of physicians that includes experts from genetics, neurology, dermatology, and genetic counseling, plus we have ready access to consultants in endocrinology, pulmonology, nephrology, neurosurgery, ophthalmology, and more. The clinic provides patients and their families with access to medical providers familiar with the healthcare guidelines and medical or emotional concerns common among patients with tuberous sclerosis (TSC). Our providers strive to offer the most current information on treatment and research in the field. There are many research opportunities available to TSC patients, and UAB is a participating site in many of these studies. So as a UAB patient, you may have access to cutting-edge therapies that are not available at other medical centers.
