Angelman Syndrome Clinic
The Angelman Syndrome Clinic at NYU Langone’s Comprehensive Epilepsy Center provides high-quality medical care to people living with Angelman syndrome, a rare genetic disorder that is most often diagnosed in children between the ages of 2 and 5.
People with Angelman syndrome often experience developmental delays, speech impairment, seizures, and difficulty balancing and walking. Gastrointestinal and orthopedic complications can occur as well. Individuals with Angelman syndrome require lifelong medical care.
Our care for people with Angelman syndrome is focused on treating the individual symptoms that are unique to each patient. Our medical team consists of epileptologists, neurologists, nurse practitioners, neuropsychologists, psychiatrists, dietitians, and social workers. Specialty visits are coordinated to address the various medical and psychosocial needs of each patient and family, and can include referral to a gastroenterologist, speech pathologist, physical therapist, occupational therapist, and geneticist, among others.
As part of our commitment to improving the lives of patients and families living with Angelman syndrome, our medical team participates in the latest clinical research protocols and trials.
