To give your child the best possible care and streamline the process for you, our orthopedic surgeons, endocrinologists, geneticists, nurse practitioners and radiologists work together as a team. At a typical visit, you will see 2 types of doctors — such as orthopedists and endocrinologists — at the same time in the same room.
Each week the team from the Skeletal Health Program meets to review cases from the previous week and to plan for visits in the coming week. This way your child’s treatment is based on input from all our specialists.
If your child needs care from specialists in other programs or departments at Seattle Children’s, like Neurosurgery or Otolaryngology, we involve them and we help schedule appointments to make it easier for you.
