LPA's Medical Resource Center
This is THE place for medical information needs.
The LPA Medical Resource Center is an in-depth reference guide to the approximately 200 different types of dwarfism, intended not just for the lay person, but for medical professionals as well.
The MRC also contains information about anesthesia, surgeries and procedures, common questions and a FAQ.
The Medical Resource Center was compiled by Medical Advisory Board member Ericka Okenfuss. She is also available for limited questions.
