The Turner Syndrome GreatHeighTS Clinic
at Children's Mercy Hospital

The clinic is a comprehensive medical approach to providing care
for the more than 70 Turner Syndrome patients in the region.

The clinic is held once every four months and offers
patients and families an opportunity to meet with multiple
pediatric specialists in one convenient location.
Each child's visit includes complete lab and X-ray procedures.
During the one-day clinic, families and patients are invited to
take part in social activities that promote a sense of community.

An educational presentation is provided over the lunch hour
to increase understanding of TS and facilitiate
communication between providers and families.

A "Pink Party" room is available for the girls! There are crafts and they
can be treated with getting their hair done, nails painted and make up!
