Pediatric Metabolic Bone Clinic
The Pediatric Metabolic Bone Clinic cares for children with complex bone disorders, including rare conditions. Many of our patients need to see a range of providers, so we emphasize coordinating treatments from experts in numerous disciplines.
Our team includes pediatric specialists in genetics, endocrinology, nephrology and orthopedic surgery. To ensure that each child receives the best possible care, we work closely together and consult regularly with our colleagues in pediatric musculoskeletal radiology and bone densitometry (assessment of bone thickness), staying up-to-date on individual needs and progress. As our patients reach adulthood, we help with transitioning their care to the UCSF Metabolic Bone Clinic to ensure they continue to get the treatments they need.
We work with families on a case-by-case basis, scheduling appointments with specialists as appropriate for the child's condition. When possible, we schedule in-person appointments with multiple providers on the same day to reduce the travel burden on our patients and families. You'll receive specific instructions about when and where to meet your child's provider when we schedule the appointment.
If your child needs orthopedic care for a sports injury, fracture or scoliosis, please request an appointment with the Pediatric Orthopedic Clinic.
