Disorders of Sexual Development (DSD) and Gender Management Service (GeMS) are dedicated to providing care and support to infants, children, adolescents and young adults with gender identity disorder (GID) or disorders of sexual differentiation (DSDs).
Our multi-disciplinary team includes specialists from:
Together, we provide physical and psychological evaluation and referrals for surgery and ongoing care.
Founded by one of the first endocrinologists to treat disorders of sexual development, our specialists have had a long-standing expertise in treating disorders of sexual 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 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.
