From birth to adulthood, children with congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) and disorders of sex development (DSD) require healthcare from a variety of specialties for medical management. At the Leo Fung Center for CAH and DSD at University of Minnesota Children’s Hospital, you will find the help you need for these complex and rare disorders.

Since opening in 2005, the Leo Fung Center for CAH and DSD has the distinction of being the first clinic in the country where providers from many specialties work together in a single clinic location to care for patients with CAH and DSD. If visits with multiple specialists are needed, all can be coordinated in a single visit, which reduces the number of necessary clinic appointments. The Center’s team discusses your child’s condition and working together, monitors his or her care. Your primary care provider becomes part of the team as well, coordinating to get your child the care he or she needs.

This advanced team includes pediatric specialists in endocrinology, urology, obstetrics/gynecology, psychology, and genetic counselors.
