  • Expert Care for Children with Tuberous Sclerosis

    The Tuberous Sclerosis (TS) Clinic at Cincinnati Children’s is one of the world’s largest centers for treating this complex and misunderstood disorder. We care for nearly 600 children and adults, who come to us from across the nation and around the world.

    Treating the Whole Person

    Because TS affects so many of the body’s systems, our program draws on the expertise of pediatric specialists from a variety of disciplines within our medical center. These specialties work to provide a holistic approach to your or your child’s care. And it makes care more convenient − you or your child can often be seen by multiple specialists on the same day.

    Family-Centered Care

    We realize that any disorder affects the entire family. Our family-centered care approach includes your family in our care plan. In addition to providing exceptional physical care for you or your child, we also tend to the emotional needs of our patients and their families.

    Leading Research Means Advanced Treatments

    As a major center for research into tuberous sclerosis, we incorporate the latest scientific findings into our care. We were the first clinic in the nation to offer clinical trials of new treatments for TS, and we continue to offer highly promising and successful treatments to our patients.

    We collaborate with other TS centers around the nation. This collaboration helps us rapidly adopt advances and evidence-based practices in the care of TS and enables us to better understand the broad range of issues that patients with TS face.
