Change and transition is a normal part of being a teen. Adolescence is a time of physical maturity, developing sexuality, powerful emotions and rapid changes in ways of thinking. Even perfectly healthy teens can have a hard time coping, especially when you consider the changes that are occurring in their body and minds. At the same time, the additional pressures and stressors at school or at home, combined with the added dynamics of growing up, can complicate life.
We understand that teens may be affected by the same conditions and health problems that occur in young children or even adults, but there are distinct challenges to their healthcare. Children's Hospital Colorado offers a full range of primary, secondary and tertiary healthcare to teenagers with both physical and emotional problems.
We are growing to better meet the needs of all adolescents, their parents and their primary care providers within the Rocky Mountain region. The Adolescent Medicine Program at Children's Colorado was established in 1984, and continues to provide excellent outpatient and inpatient adolescent healthcare services and customized treatment plans for each teen we see.
At Children's Colorado, we know that teens deserve special attention. Our team members include board-certified specialists in the field of adolescent medicine who know that treatments geared towards children, or even adults, are not always right for teens. It takes a special approach, including training and expertise in all aspects of teen health – physical, emotional, mental and sexual – to provide the best care possible for your adolescent.
The multidisciplinary Adolescent Medicine team at Children’s Colorado works closely with other specialists in the hospital to ensure your teen is not only receiving the best care possible, but that treatment is tailored specifically for their needs.
Some examples of typical patients we see include:
