Memorial Sloan Kettering is home to a team of compassionate experts from different areas who specialize in treating neurofibromatosis. This includes neuro-oncologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, physiatrists, pain experts, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, radiologists, pathologists, and highly trained nurses. All of the healthcare professionals on our team focus on caring for people with neurofibromatosis and the tumors associated with the disorder.
Having experts from all of these specialties ensures that your care plan is coordinated and comprehensive. We meet regularly to review your progress and are constantly thinking of new ways we can improve your quality of life.
Often, our patients are able to see multiple specialists — a neurologist, a neurosurgeon, pain management specialists, and others — all in one visit to our biweekly Neurofibromatosis Clinic at Memorial Sloan Kettering’s main location on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. This approach spares our patients the inconvenience of having multiple appointments with the different specialists involved in their care.
