Working together with our partners at Wolfson Children’s Hospital, our pediatric orthopedists at Nemours Children’s Clinic, Jacksonville, see children with all types of skeletal dysplasia.

The Skeletal Dysplasia Appointment Process

Your child’s initial visit usually begins with a diagnostic visit through our Department of Orthopedics. These visits are quite comprehensive and can take 1-2 hours to complete.

During the visit we’ll:
  • obtain a thorough medical history and a three-generation family medical history
  • review your child’s old medical records and previously obtained X-rays
  • perform a physical examination, including detailed body measurements
  • assess ranges of joint motions (how much each joint can move) and the relative length of the limb segments

Depending upon this evaluation, we may need to do some additional forms of testing.

Whatever kind of skeletal dysplasia diagnosis your family is facing, we treat every child as we would our own — your child, our promise.
