Pediatric Genetics and Genomic Medicine
Children’s Hospital is a national leader in genetic care and research. Our place at the forefront of discovery allows us to quickly bring research results to patient care. We diagnose, counsel and treat patients with a wide range of genetic disorders, birth defects and developmental concerns.
Learning you or your child may have a genetic disorder can be difficult. Our genetic counselors are here to help. We will discuss your family history with you, and can inform you about risks of a genetic condition using lab tests. If we diagnose a genetic condition, we help you understand the disorder and provide resources.
We offer prenatal genetic counseling through the Vanderbilt Center for Women's Health and our board-certified genetic counselors.
Emergent inpatient consultations are provided 24 hours a day.
