Mayo Clinic offers appointments in Arizona, Florida and Minnesota and at Mayo Clinic Health System locations.
The goal of Mayo's Neurofibromatosis (NF) Clinic is to provide the highest quality coordinated care to our patients and their families. We offer a "clinic without walls," where physicians from a variety of specialties are available for consult. We provide clinical evaluations for neurofibromatosis (type 1 and type 2) and schwannomatosis — and all of our physicians have significant experience treating patients with these rare and complex conditions.
Our multispecialty Neurofibromatosis Clinic is coordinated through the Department of Medical Genetics and led by Dr. Dusica Babovic-Vuksanovic, a medical geneticist who is a well-recognized international expert in neurofibromatosis. The clinic staff involves colleagues from different clinical areas, including neurology; neuro-oncology; neurosurgery; ear, nose and throat (ENT); radiology; and pain medicine; as well as specialists from ophthalmology, orthopedics, general surgery, radiation oncology and oncology.
