Ours is the only clinic of its kind in Colorado, and we serve families throughout the Rocky Mountain region and across the country.
Our multidisciplinary clinic brings together medical and developmental specialists with decades of experience in international adoption medicine, global health issues, infectious diseases and the unique developmental and behavioral challenges faced by children who are adopted from abroad. Plus, we have access to world-class pediatric expertise as part of our location at Children's Colorado on Anschutz Medical Campus.
Our team members also have extensive personal experience with issues in international adoption; some have adopted children of their own from other countries and many have worked around the world with orphaned and abandoned children.
Our experience helps us to assess the medical, nutritional, developmental and behavioral issues specific to international adoptees, and to help you and your pediatrician provide the best care to your new child and to your family.
