Your child’s initial visit for skeletal dysplasia usually begins with a diagnostic visit through our Medical Genetics division. These visits are quite comprehensive and can take 1-2 hours to complete.
To make a specific skeletal dysplasia diagnosis in an individual child, we look at all of the data we gather as a whole. But some skeletal dysplasias can take time to diagnose, so we may need to do another comprehensive evaluation.
Through the Medical Genetics clinic, we follow our patients at approximately six-month intervals until 6 years old. Then visits are typically spaced yearly.
Whatever kind of skeletal dysplasia diagnosis your family is facing, we treat every child as we would our own — your child, our promise.
Nemours has a number of service regions. Selecting your region will help us show you the right contact information and the most relevant content for you.
