Prader-Willi Syndrome Clinic

At the Comprehensive Prader-Willi Syndrome Clinic at Children's Hospital, a multidisciplinary team approach provides the best care for all patients with PWS and their families. This team includes experts in genetics, endocrinology, sleep medicine, neurology, developmental medicine, and diet and nutrition.

Our goal is to be there for you as your child grows. You will have many questions along the way. We are here to answer those questions even when your child is not being seen for an appointment. This requires regular contact with your family. Our network extends beyond the clinic. We work with providers all over the world to provide the most up-to-date and progressive clinical care with opportunities for researching new medications.

We work with each family to provide personalized care. You know your child better than anyone else, and we incorporate your expertise into our care plan. Our job is to stay up to date on all PWS-related clinical and research data available and bring this to you every single day.

Contact us any time at praderwilliclinic@vumc.org. Call Becca Hardin at (615) 936-8866 to schedule an appointment, or if you have questions about the clinic.
