Here are some of the reasons why parents choose us for their children’s care:

The Only Center of Its Kind

Our center is the only dedicated Treacher Collins multidisciplinary center in the United States. Here you’ll find care from a team of compassionate experts in multiple specialties who work together to treat all aspects of Treacher Collins syndrome.

Care From Birth to Adulthood

We follow kids with Treacher Collins throughout their childhood. There is no need for you to piece together care from different hospitals. Our team collaborates from the earliest stages of diagnosis throughout your child’s treatments, until it’s time to transition to adult care.

Family-Centered Approach

Families are integral to each child’s care. We encourage your perspective and input, and take time to make sure you understand your child’s condition and treatment options.

Individualized Care Plans

Your Treacher Collins Center team will develop a care plan that is tailored to your individual child’s needs. This ensures the care your child receives is focused and prioritized. In addition, parents receive the education and support they need to care for their child at home.

Genetic Counseling

Genetics plays a big role in Treacher Collins syndrome. Any person with the syndrome has a 50/50 chance of passing it on to his or her children. A clinical genetics evaluation is offered to every child and family seen at our center, which includes determination of appropriate genetic testing for confirmation of diagnosis.

Multidisciplinary Care, All in One Place

Your care team will involve specialists from a variety of disciplines as needed, based on the unique needs of your child. Providers from the following specialties make up the Treacher Collins Center team:

“The feedback we hear most often from families about why they want to come here is the comprehensive team care that we offer. The expertise available here is unique."
