Neurofibromatosis Program

The University Of Rochester Medical Center offers comprehensive care for children and adults with Neurofibromatosis 1 and 2, including Schwannomatosis. Neurofibromatosis is a common disorder affecting 1 in 3,000 individuals, and can be associated with a variety of medical complications. These are genetic disorders where care for entire families is important. A care team that is present throughout one's life assures access to providers familiar with these diseases and recommendations for management of complications.
