Appointments for vaccinations and well-child checks are important to stay up-to-date on, but so are gynecology appointments for your daughter.

The National Hemophilia Foundation (NHF) estimates that today more than 2.5 million girls and women in the U.S. have an undiagnosed bleeding disorder that adversely affects their lives. Research shows that young women with bleeding disorders often experience delays in diagnosis. The Teen Hematology and Gynecology Program at Children's – the only program of its kind in Minnesota – offers coordinated care for such conditions, where patients can schedule visits that include both a pediatric hematologist and pediatric gynecologist.
Gynecological conditions that occur in babies, children or adolescents require the skill and training of experienced pediatric specialists. Our pediatric and adolescent gynecologists are among Minnesota’s most recognized experts in the field. They are fellowship-trained to offer guidance and expertise on the female reproductive system.
