Managing disease...: Spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia (sed) affects many systems in the body. While there are no cures, it is very important to have a team of specialists to help with the complications of this disease. These include orthopedists (bone issues such as neck stability, joint health, and spine issues), ophthalmologists (retinal problems), and otolaryngologists (hearing deficits).
