  • Overview

    Disorders of sex development (DSDs) occur more frequently than most people realize, and yet there are numerous misconceptions persisting in the clinical arena as to how these disorders are best approached. For example, whereas older prevailing sentiments on presentations of ambiguous genitalia called for immediate sex assignments at birth followed by surgical alignments of those decisions, more modern philosophies advocate for direct patient involvement in these decisions a little later in life.      

    Joining Dr. Prathima Setty to focus on this important topic is Dr. Earl Cheng, Professor of Urology, Division Head of Urology and Co-Head of Reconstructive Pediatric Urology at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. Dr. Cheng directs the Gender and Sex Development Program at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago.
