The Stanford Clinical Neurogenetic Oncology Program is the first clinic in Northern California to offer world-class care for patients with clinical neurogenetic disorders, which can cause tumors to grow inside the brain, spinal cord, organs, skin and skeletal bones.
Neurogenetic Oncology Program at Stanford Neuroscience Health Center
Our team has extensive expertise in handling the most complicated cases including autosomal dominant diseases: Neurofibromatosis (NF) Type 1 and Type 2 , Schwannomatosis, Von Hippel-Lindau, Tuberous Sclerosis, Sturge Weber Syndrome, and autosomal recessive diseases such as Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia. Working with our neurology colleagues, we are also able to evaluate and manage other neurogenetic disorders, such as the genetics of movement disorders and neuromuscular diseases.
Services offered include:
Comprehensive evaluations that may include radiographic images, neuropsychology evaluation, neuro-diagnostic evaluation, eye and hearing evaluation, genetic testing, and laboratory testing
Diagnostic testing including MRI, CT and PET imaging
Personal treatment plan that may include Cyberknife radiosurgery, neuro-interventional radiology procedures, and neurosurgical interventions
Ongoing clinical/radiological monitoring and surveillance
