Think of us as the mother (and father) of all pediatrics practices. Whatever your child is facing — from unusual symptoms, to rare genetic diseases to common conditions such as asthma, diabetes and autism — University of Minnesota Physicians can help.

Our pediatricians provide family-centered, comprehensive medical care to children from infancy to young adulthood. We offer a unique depth of experience and knowledge, with nationally and internationally renowned programs in areas such as adoption medicine, diabetes, infectious diseases, heart disease, kidney disease, liver disease, cystic fibrosis, and surgery.

As faculty of the University of Minnesota Medical School, our providers also conduct research and apply what they learn to help prevent and treat pediatric illnesses in Minnesota and throughout the world. Your child doesn’t have to be extremely ill or have a complex condition to benefit from our expertise — you just have to want the best possible care.


While we offer a broad range of treatments for a variety of conditions, we have specialized centers and clinics to provide treatment for:

  • Adoption medicine
  • Autism spectrum disorders
  • Child abuse and neglect
  • Cleft palate and other craniofacial conditions
  • Cystic fibrosis
  • Disorders of sex development and congenital hyperplasia (CAH)
  • Eating disorders
  • Genetics and metabolism
  • Hearing loss
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • PKU (phenylketonuria) and hyperphenylalaiemia
  • Weight management and obesity prevention
