Duke Child and Adolescent Gender Care
Our team of specialists uses an integrative, holistic approach to provide quality, comprehensive and compassionate family-centered care to transgender youth, gender-expansive youth, and children with differences of sex development.
We provide treatment, support, education and counseling to transgender youth who are exploring their gender identity and gender expression, as well as their families. We also treat people with gender dysphoria, which occurs when sex and gender assigned at birth do not align with a person’s gender identity.
Our clinic is staffed by experts in pediatric endocrinology, pediatric urology, clinical social workers, and counselors in psychology/psychiatry and spiritual care. We also partner with doctors, surgeons and counselors in neonatology, genetics, family and community medicine, adolescent medicine, voice care services, fertility, and nutrition.
We offer the multiple services your child and family needs in one convenient location. Our clinic is open two days per month.
Please note: Due to increasing demand, we are currently booking new patient appointments several months out with first new appointments being scheduled in October 2016. We are working on strategies to accommodate this increased demand. Thank you for your patience.
