Here below are SDS/Bone Marrow Failure Centers that SDSF recommends. These are hospitals that have doctors who are knowledgable

about SDS and some of them are even on our Medical Advisory Board. Each center will arrange appointments as needed for hematology, GI, endocrinology, orthapedics and more.  These SDS experts will then often draw up a patient care plan for the patient to take home to their own physicians who routinely follow them. This can make it easy for managing record keeping and easy for getting your records to the SDS Registry. For other doctors please click on a link below to find ones in your area. If you can't find one near you,  you might find it valuable to inquire at the closest teaching medical facility to see if they have physicians on staff who know about SDS. In some cases, even though they may not know about SDS specifically, they may have experience with one or more of the 7 other bone marrow failure diseases.
