Huntington's Disease Clinic

The UCSF Huntington's Disease Clinic helps patients with this genetic disease manage the involuntary movements and dementia that develop. Huntington's disease is a hereditary disorder passed on by a parent through a mutation in a gene. The clinic is an affiliate of the UCSF Division of Medical Genetics and the UCSF Memory and Aging Center.

We are part of the UCSF Weill Institute for Neurosciences.
