Growth Center (Diagnostic and Research)

The Diagnostic and Research Growth Center at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia evaluates, diagnoses and treats children with disorders of growth and puberty.

When you visit the Center, your child will be cared for by our multidisciplinary team of physicians, nurse clinicians, family therapists and nutritionists, who are nationally recognized experts in the area of growth. We are actively involved in the latest treatment approaches for children with growth disorders, including new research approaches, and we plan your child's treatment with the benefit of this knowledge.

The Diagnostic and Research Growth Center works with other services at CHOP so your child may also visit the Clinical Research Center and the outpatient Day Medicine Unit for diagnostic testing. The close proximity of these facilities offers more convenient coordination of your child's care.
