Turner Syndrome is treated at Nationwide Children’s Hospital by a multi-disciplinary team of health care providers. We emphasize early intervention and a proactive approach to the assessment of and treatment for the possible complications that can be associated with this genetic disorder. Our goal is to provide individualized, comprehensive care for the newborn to young adult female with a confirmed diagnosis of Turner Syndrome. We have a close relationship with clinicians from a number of supporting disciplines, including Cardiology, Dermatology, ENT, Ophthalmology, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy and Psychology. These clinicians are readily accessible to meet the individual needs of our patients.
Turner Syndrome Clinic operates on the third Friday of each month in the Endocrinology Clinic.
