Adolescent medicine specialists are physicians trained to manage the healthcare needs of adolescents in an interdisciplinary environment. Specialty care services may include disorders of puberty, male and female reproductive health care, basic urologic management, complex medical issues with medical and behavioral components (such as eating disorders), mental health and behavioral management disorders, substance abuse management, sports health and transitional health issues. Adolescent health specialists are an important clinical resource for families with disabled adolescents, for whom the normal transitions of puberty may be challenging.
