Our Disorders of Sex Development (DSD) and Gender Management Service (GeMS) Program is dedicated to providing care and support to infants, children, adolescents and young adults with disorders of sex development (DSDs) and youth with concerns about gender identity.
Our multi-disciplinary team includes specialists from:
Together, we provide physical and psychological evaluation, ongoing care, and additional referrals as needed.
Founded by one of the first endocrinologists to treat disorders of sex development, our program includes specialists who have a long-standing expertise in treating disorders of sex development (DSDs) such as mixed gonadal dysgenesis, congenital adrenal hyperplasia, androgen insensitivity syndrome, and other conditions that cause ambiguous genitalia. In 2007, the Program expanded to include patients with concerns about gender identity and became the first major program in the United States to focus on transgender 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.
