San Luis Obispo Specialty Care Center
Providing children and families access to some of the world’s finest pediatric subspecialists in an environment that is close to home, the San Luis Obispo Specialty Care Center serves patients from San Luis Obispo County and the Central Coast.
The Center is a partnership between Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center and Specialty Medical Group (SMG), in affiliation with Valley Children’s Healthcare. In support of the region’s pediatricians, family practice and obstetrical physicians, SMG’s pediatric specialists provide care for newborns, children and adolescents with congenital, acquired and acute conditions.
Our pediatric cardiologists are members of the Willson Heart Center at Valley Children’s Hospital which offers advanced technology and state-of-the-art therapeutics for congenital cardiovascular disease and pediatric acquired cardiovascular disease. Heart Center programs include: Cardiology, Cardiac Surgery, Interventional Cardiology, the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory, the Cardiology Testing Center, and the Cardiopulmonary Laboratory.
Our pediatric endocrinologists specialize in the diagnosis and medical management of patients with endocrine (hormone) disorders. Commonly, these include growth disorders, pituitary gland abnormalities, thyroid disorders, adrenal gland abnormalities and disorders of puberty.
Our pediatric gastroenterologists specialize in the diagnosis and management of infants, children and adolescents with gastrointestinal and nutritional disorders. The practice treats many conditions such as unspecified abdominal pain, esophageal reflux, gastritis, gastrointestinal bleeding, esophagitis and irritable bowel syndrome.
