Physicians see children with lupus at the Pediatric Specialty Care Explorer Clinic, where a multidisciplinary team evaluates your child’s symptoms and creates a unique plan for care. Physicians also may coordinate with specialists at the Lupus Clinic at the University of Minnesota Medical Center, as well as with experts in a wide range of pediatric specialties. Our goal is to control your child’s lupus symptoms, reduce any inflammation, prevent flares, and minimize any organ damage.
Your child will also benefit from our physicians’ active involvement in clinical and translational research to apply the latest discoveries in science to the practice of medicine. We continually seek advanced treatments, as well as cures, for diseases such as lupus.
