The Down Syndrome Center in St. Louis
We are very fortunate to have a Down Syndrome Center in St. Louis. It is located at St. Louis Children’s Hospital and has seen hundreds of patients with Down syndrome since it opened in 2005.
The Down Syndrome Center at St. Louis Children’s Hospital is a comprehensive and multidisciplinary clinic focusing on the medical and developmental needs of children with Down syndrome. Children are evaluated from birth to 21 years of age, including prenatally diagnosed cases. When your child visits the Down Syndrome Center, he/she will be evaluated by Dr. Dorothy Grange or the CPNP. They will focus on medical and developmental issues, and screening recommendations will be completed.
The Center also collaborates with other specialties as needed: Cardiology, Ophthalmology, ENT, Audiology, Therapy Services, Dietitian and Social Services. The Center also works with additional specialties such as Endocrine, GI, Neurology and Orthopedic Surgery. Our goal is to optimize the quality of life for your child by offering comprehensive individualized care in one setting.
The Center will make it simpler for you by:
- Arranging appointments at one location with the specialists your child needs to see.
- Arranging your appointments in the most efficient manner so you and your child gain the maximum benefit.
- Using a collaborative approach because our team of experienced caregivers is in one location.
The Down Syndrome Center is located at St. Louis Children’s Hospital, 2nd Floor, Suite 2C.
