Pediatric Medical Complexity
Children with medical complexity typically have chronic or severe health conditions and substantial healthcare needs. Such conditions include cerebral palsy, congenital heart disease, genetic syndromes and others. These children may require many medications and have chronic pain, unexplained symptoms and developmental issues. They require multidisciplinary resources and an engaged care team to navigate the healthcare system.
Primary care provided with these resources is available at The University of Kansas Health System Pillars Clinic. Here, our specialists provide advanced care to meet the healthcare needs of medically complex pediatric patients.
