Genetic Testing and Counseling Before and After Birth
Identifying Genetic Disorders
Identifying genetic disorders at the earliest possible stage is a fundamental part of what we do. Depending on your family history, screening can take place in adults before becoming pregnant, during pregnancy, and in children after birth. Screening is routinely performed on newborns as part of the childbirth process. This allows us to begin treatment as early as possible for any genetic diseases that are detected. Genetic testing is also available for children and adults with suspected genetic conditions.
Genetic Counseling for Families
Our genetic counselors communicate with families to help them achieve a comprehensive understanding of what the test results mean. We also address the social and ethical implications of genetic testing in children.
