The Skeletal Dysplasia Group was founded in 1979 with the aim of promoting teaching and research into the rare developmental disorders of skeletal growth (osteochondrodystrophies). Members include professionals from all relevant branches of medicine and basic sciences including geneticists, radiologists, orthopaedic surgeons, paediatricians, genetic nurses, endocrinologists and rheumatologists.

Our Membership

Membership is limited to medically or scientifically qualified individuals, and run by a committee of management formed by one orthopaedic surgeon, one radiologist and one medical geneticist, although others are co-opted - the aim being to reflect the principal disciplines of those undertaking the investigation and care of these disorders.
