Washington University’s Neurofibromatosis Center Is Changing Lives, December 2014

Is it beneficial for the patient? That one question is foremost n the minds of researchers and doctors at Washington University’s Neurofibromatosis Center. Dr. David Gutmann started the Washington University Neurofibromatosis center over 10 years ago. NF1 is a disorder caused by a gene mutation and NF1 affects patients differently based on age. Dr. Gutmann established a research lab and a clinical program to care for NF patients. From the beginning, the NF center has sought input from oncologists, surgeons, and therapists to improve care for those affected with brain tumors and learning disabilities. Cordell Whitlock shows us how they do it.
