Nemours Children's is world-renowned for the diagnosis and treatment of skeletal dysplasias, including campomelic dysplasia. Campomelic dysplasia is one of the rarest forms of congenital (present at birth) short-limb dwarfism. At Nemours, we work as a team to maximize children’s mobility, repair congenital heart defects and prevent future complications. If your child has been diagnosed with campomelic dysplasia, we’re here to ease your concerns, answer your questions and give your child the best possible chance for a healthy future.
Nemours has been recognized for delivering advanced pediatric orthopedic care since 1940. Families from all over the world travel to see our skeletal dysplasia experts. Our genetics doctors have the experience and training to diagnose even the rarest types of skeletal dysplasia, like campomelic dysplasia. Once we’ve identified your child’s condition, we work together to create a personalized treatment plan.
Treatment is led by our world-renowned pediatric orthopedic experts, including William Mackenzie, MD. Since skeletal dysplasia can evolve and change with time, Nemours has established one of the world’s top pediatric imaging programs to track and measure changes to children’s bodies.
