Overview

The Division of Pediatric Genetics is made up of clinical geneticists—physicians certified in multiple medical specialties—and genetic counselors. In addition to seeing a wide range of patients for inborn errors of metabolism, connective tissue dysplasias, developmental delay, birth defects, fetal alcohol syndrome, skeletal dysplasias, chromosome disorders, autism, and a number of hereditary disorders, our physicians also conduct research into the causes of many of these conditions.

We are also involved with Mayo Clinic Cancer Center in investigating cancerous and pre-cancerous conditions that may be genetic in origin.
