Angelman Syndrome Clinic

The comprehensive Angelman Syndrome clinic at Vanderbilt is a partnership with the Angelman Syndrome Foundation. We aim to provide comprehensive care to all individuals with Angelman syndrome from birth through adulthood.

At Children's Hospital we want to improve upon and implement new standards of care. We use a strong evidence base and the knowledge and experience we have gained working with families and other medical experts around the world. Ultimately, we want to improve the quality of life for both our patients and their caregivers.

We believe our care extends outside the clinic. An appointment at Children's Hospital is only the beginning of learning more about your child. We add a personal touch and strong advocacy for every child. Our clinic combines medical care, education, scientific research and clinical trials to provide your family with every available therapy. We work with your medical home to ensure continuity of care.
