Turner Syndrome Center
What is the Turner Center?
The Turner Syndrome (TS) Center at Cincinnati Children's is a multi-disciplinary clinic for children, adolescents and young adults with TS. We also have a separate clinic designed for adult women with TS. Visit our Adult TS Center page.
The TS Center was established in 2000. We aim to provide comprehensive care and health supervision, and offer an integrated approach to treating TS and associated disorders. We offer guidance for patients, parents and families dealing with a diagnosis of TS. Our specialists can also provide referral to other specialists in audiology, otolaryngology, cardiology, genetics, developmental disorders and orthopedics.
