Answer

A medical home with a multidisciplinary care facility is ideal for patients with Silver-Russell syndrome. Usually, a team may include clinical genetic counselors; dietitians and gastroenterologists, for feeding issues and failure to thrive; endocrinologists for short stature and puberty; speech therapists for delay; and orthopedists for scoliosis, but it can be tailored according to the patient's specific symptoms and needs.
