Huntington's Disease Clinic
Huntington's disease is a hereditary disorder that's passed from parent to child through a genetic mutation. At the Huntington's Disease Clinic, we provide expert care and support for all touched by the disorder – patients, caregivers and those at risk for the genetic mutation. We provide genetic testing and counseling. We work with patients of all ages to manage their progressing symptoms and gain access to the latest drug therapies.
Our team provides supportive services for patients and their families, including psychiatric care, physical therapy consultations, long-term care planning, palliative care and support groups. Our goal is to provide patients and their caregivers with the best possible quality of life. In recognition of our expertise and comprehensive services, the Huntington's Disease Society of America has designated UCSF a Center of Excellence.
Our clinic is an affiliate between UCSF's Division of Medical Genetics and the UCSF Memory and Aging Center.
