Turner Syndrome Program
Girls with Turner Syndrome were born with a missing or incomplete X chromosome. Girls with Turner Syndrome require special health care, and the UNC Turner Syndrome Clinic strives to meet each individual's needs. We follow the latest guidelines for medical treatment of girls and women with Turner Syndrome as recommended by the Turner Syndrome Study Group. The UNC Turner Syndrome Clinic is a multidisciplinary, comprehensive care clinic that is recognized by the Turner Syndrome Society. Clinics occur monthly in both Raleigh and Chapel Hill.
Dr. Jennifer Law, Pediatric Endocrinologist, is the Director of the UNC Turner Syndrome Clinic. In this clinic, appointments with multiple specialties who are part of the UNC Turner Syndrome Clinic team are coordinated on the same day. Our team includes:
- Pediatric Endocrinology
- Pediatric Cardiology
- Pediatric Psychology
- Occupational Therapy
- Reproductive Endocrinology
Transition care to adult specialists is also coordinated by the UNC Turner Syndrome Clinic team. Dr. Law and a nurse coordinator is available to assist with care management. In addition to clinical care, the UNC Turner Syndrome Clinic offers opportunities to participate in various clinical studies.
The UNC Turner Syndrome Clinic team looks forward to providing specialized health care designed just for you!
