Neurofibromatosis Clinic

Director: John Slopis, MD

Many people have heard of the genetic condition neurofibromatosis, but few can explain what this is.

It is common, yet baffling: occurring in about one in 2,500 live births, but with symptoms that vary from minimal to profound and debilitating. And it’s worthy of study, say cancer and genetic experts, because the DNA mutations that cause its three types may yield crucial information about how cancer develops — and new approaches to cancer treatment.

Clinics are held every Thursday from 8:30 to 3:00pm.
