Program for Pediatric Differences in Sex Development (DSD)

The terminology for DSDs is ever-changing. They are also called Disorders of Sex Development (medically) and intersex conditions. 

Some children are born with a DSD due to an unusual event during fetal sex development. Our DSD program provides a specialized team approach to the complex needs of patients with DSDs. Our team consists of a social worker, nurses, coordinator and physicians.
