The Neurofibromatosis Comprehensive Care Team at St. Louis Children’s Hospital provides detailed patient assessments and works with referring physicians, allied health professionals and agencies to deliver state-of-the-art medical services both locally and nationally.
Neurofibromatosis affects different people in different ways. As a team, we work with our patients and their families to care for the whole person.
To do so, all team members at St. Louis Children’s Hospital and Washington University meet regularly to discuss current standards of care and to discuss exciting new developments. These meetings not only include health care professionals, but also research scientists. Through regular communication, our team is able to provide the most up to date and progressive treatment plans.
In this segment, David Gutmann, MD, PhD, Washington University neurologist at St. Louis Children’s Hospital, discusses Neurofibromatosis Research and clinical care.
