Sturge-Weber Syndrome Clinic
About the clinic
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.
To learn more about Sturge-Weber and how we care for our patients, see this Q&A with our doctors.
