Research & Innovation

Years ago, babies born with ambiguous genitalia were routinely "assigned" a gender by their physicians, and underwent treatment to match that assignment. Today, decision-making is much more individualized and is done in close consultation with the family.

Beyond evaluating, diagnosing and treating infants, children and adolescents with disorders of the genital and urinary organs, The Gender Management Service (GeMS) Clinic at Boston Children's Hospital is also looking to the future. Our physicians and researchers are leading a number of studies and trials that hold great promise in the detection and treatment of this condition.
