Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC) Center

The Jack & Julia Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC) Center offers personalized medical, developmental and psychological care to children as well as adults with this genetic disorder. The Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance has recognized our center since 2004 for its comprehensive care.

TSC symptoms vary greatly from person to person, and each patient has unique needs. Because epilepsy, developmental delays and behavioral concerns are the most common issues in children with TSC, a developmental pediatrician and a neurologist with TSC expertise lead initial evaluations and coordinate ongoing care. Depending on individual needs, they may refer patients to other UCSF experts, such as cardiologists, dermatologists, kidney specialists, neurosurgeons, dentists, ophthalmologists, pulmonologists or gastroenterologists.

By providing access to a range of specialists in one location, our center delivers a level of personalized care that leads to better outcomes for our patients and improved quality of life for the whole family. Our staff is available to help facilitate referrals, coordinate appointments with multiple specialists and assist with insurance authorizations.
