Mother helping child with a puzzle

We’ll start today, at this moment.

If your child is diagnosed with a genetic disorder, you want to fully understand what the disorder will mean to him or her, and to you. Our specialists will help you and your child.

Genetic disorders can cause health problems for a baby or child. Some are serious. Others simply require a little extra medical care. Whether your child needs emergency treatment before birth, therapy during childhood, or surgery to improve health, we’re ready to start helping today.

A special group of physicians and genetic counselors here focus on the range of medical conditions caused by genes that are passed down through families. The field is called, “genetics.” It covers conditions such as Down Syndrome, muscular dystrophy, cleft palate, clubfoot, heart defects, and more.

Our physicians work closely with a range of specialists and sub-specialists throughout central and northeastern Pennsylvania. So from emergency care before birth to complex surgeries as your child grows, we’re ready to help today.
