Tuberous Sclerosis Clinic
The Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC) clinic at Loma Linda University Health Care was the first TSC clinic organized on the west coast and began operating in 2004. This “clinic without walls” for adults and children, uses a multi-disciplinary approach that provides all appropriate medical and surgical services related to the many complications of TSC.
Patients are initially seen and evaluated by clinic director Stephen Ashwal, MD and clinic coordinator Holly Bernardi, RN. Patients are then referred for subspecialty consultation, testing and treatment. All subspecialists have substantial experience in evaluating and managing individuals with TSC (see multidisciplinary team list).
The clinic is a member of the national Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance and participates in national multicenter clinical trials related to TSC.
The TSC clinic is held once a week and as needed at the LLUHC Pediatric Neurology Clinic.
