Genetic/Birth Defects

We diagnose and treat children and adults with all types of genetic disorders, including:

  • Inherited metabolic and neurologic diseases. Metabolic problems affect biochemical processes in the body. Neurologic problems affect the brain, spinal cord or nerves.
  • Developmental delay
  • Mental retardation
  • Abnormal (dysmorphic) features

We also work with maternal-fetal medicine specialists (high-risk obstetricians) to provide prenatal diagnoses.
 
Our team includes clinical geneticists, genetic counselors, a social worker, nurses and consultants from various medical specialties. We coordinate treatment with the patient's primary care and/or supportive services health providers in the community.
