In recognition of the comprehensive care our clinic provides, the Sturge-Weber Foundation has designated Boston Children's Hospital as one of 10 Centers of Excellence in the United States. The Sturge-Weber Foundation sees our collaborative approach to care, in particular, as tremendously beneficial to our patients.

At our clinic, we care for children who have Sturge-Weber syndrome (SWS)—a rare disorder characterized by a “port wine stain” birthmark on the face and neurological abnormalities. It is a congenital disorder, meaning that the child is born with it.

The disease can involve a range of complications: In addition to the birthmark, children may experience seizures, developmental delays, muscle weakness and eye problems. So a number of different specialists on our team may work together to care for your child.

With a range of specialists, we are able to provide your child with comprehensive care. Our team includes specialists from the fields of:

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
