Welcome to the WMed Pediatric Myelodysplasia Clinic
Our Pediatric Myelodysplasia Clinic serves as a resource for the region, providing multidisciplinary care and consultation for children with a variety of genetic, congenital, and developmental disorders. The team consists of providers from pediatrics, orthopedics, psychology, dietary services, speech, occupational and physical therapy, orthotics and social work. The clinics focus on diagnostic and interventional care often required by children in these populations. Comprehensive summaries and recommendations are supplied to referring physicians. The goal of this clinic is to ensure comprehensive services using a multidisciplinary team approach and to support the local primary care provider.
Children's Multidisciplinary Specialty Clinics
Many of our patients are covered by Children's Special Health Care Services (CSHCS), allowing us to provide enhanced services including a multidisciplinary clinic in which patients may be seen by nutrition, physical therapy, psychology and dentistry providers in addition to our clinic team. The State of Michigan allows children with this diagnosis one comprehensive visit, three follow-up visits and 10 supplementary visits per year.
