National Recognition by the Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance

NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center is designated by the Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance as a Tuberous Sclerosis Center. With this recognition, the NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia Tuberous Sclerosis Center has become a referral site for the Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance to direct adult and pediatric patients for assessment, treatment, and follow-up care.

Access to World-Class Pediatric Specialists

Your child's healthcare team has access to all of the various pediatric medical and surgical subspecialists who practice at NewYork-Presbyterian, ensuring that all of your child's medical needs can be addressed.

Seamless Access to Resources and Support Services

At New York-Presbyterian, patients and families have seamless access to our vast resources, including on-staff neuropsychologists who offer testing and treatments for emotional and cognitive issues that may occur after a brain or spine injury.  We also have a Parent-to-Parent program that can connect you personally with a parent whose child has been treated for the condition your child has.

Leaders in Research

Ongoing TSC research continues to be promising, not only for this disorder, but also for autism, epilepsy, and even cancer, because of a shared genetic pathway. As a Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance-designated clinic, NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia’s Tuberous Sclerosis Center will be able to strengthen its research program by offering patients the opportunity to participate in clinical trials of promising new approaches.
