Adolescent medicine is the care of people in and around their teen years, up to 20 years of age.
Seattle Children's is a leader in adolescent medicine. Our team specializes in caring for young people with long-lasting conditions, such as eating disorders, obesity and chronic pain.
In addition to the subspecialty clinics above, we offer care for young people with health concerns that include:
When the cause of pain is unclear, dealing with it can be especially difficult. We provide treatment and support for young people with long-lasting and painful conditions, including headaches, musculoskeletal pain and fatigue.
As boys and girls mature physically and sexually, they may develop health concerns. Our team includes experts in caring for young people with problems including delayed puberty, body image concerns and sexual health.
: Coping with a long-lasting illness is hard for anyone. When your child is going through puberty and dealing with growing up, it can be especially challenging. Our team provides consultations for young people with a variety of problems related to long-term illness, including help with sticking to treatment plans and dealing with the mental and social stresses of chronic illness.
The Teenology 101 blog is a guide for parents and caregivers raising teenagers, written by experts from our department of adolescent medicine.
Seattle Children's Autism Center presents The Autism Blog, a new way for providers to share with parents and caregivers what we continue to learn.
