TSC Clinic

The Vanderbilt TSC Clinic is directed by Dr. Ess and was established in 2006. We provide comprehensive care for pediatric patients with TSC. The clinic has many associated subspecialties including Neurology, Epilepsy, Neurosurgery, Neuropsychology, Dermatology, Cardiology, and Nephrology. Dr. Ess is an expert on the management of neurologic disorders in TSC and also functions as a TSC “primary care physician” coordinating non-Neurologic care and ordering important screening tests such as renal ultrasounds.
