NF2 Clinical Program

Individuals with Neurofibromatosis Type 2 (NF2) can now benefit from the midwest’s only program specializing in NF2 patient care – the Washington University NF2 Clinical Program. This program is a joint project of the Washington University NF Center and the Alvin J. Siteman Cancer Center at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Washington University School of Medicine.

Individuals with NF2 are currently cared for by Greg Zipfel, MD, Albert Kim, MD, PhD (Department of Neurosurgery), and Craig A. Buchman, MD (Lindburg Professor and Chair, Department of Otolaryngology). Their collective experience in treating large numbers of patients with this uncommon disease galvanized the assembly of this team of experts aimed at providing specialized care tailored to patients diagnosed with NF2.

A dedicated group of physicians and other health care professionals from a broad spectrum of medical specialties — including neurosurgery, otolaryngology, neurology, medical oncology, radiation oncology, neuroradiology, plastic and reconstructive surgery, audiology, neuro-ophthalmology, anesthesiology (pain management), physical therapy, and social work — coordinate patient assessments and provide treatment with a comprehensive approach.
