Our Expertise

Founded by one of the first endocrinologists to treat disorders of sex development, our specialists have had a long-standing expertise in treating disorders of sex development (DSDs) such as mixed gonadal dysgenesis, congenital adrenal hyperplasia and ambiguous genitalia. In 2007, the Program expanded to include patients with trangenderism and became the first major program in the United States to focus on gender dysphoria in children and adolescents.

Our experienced clinicians are familiar with the mental and emotional aspects of each unique condition. And since we work within Boston Children’s, we also know what questions to ask the rest of your child’s medical team. This collaborative effort allows us to develop the best possible treatment plan for each child.
