Paediatrics and Genetics

Fortunately, most children are born healthy with no medical problems or birth  defects. However, many children are born with differences in body structure, development of the brain,or body chemistry that can contribute to health, development, school performance, and/or social interaction problems. In order to identify the causes and natural history of these disorders, pediatric geneticists are trained. They may suggest tests and treatments that may help you understand and take care of  your child. Pediatric geneticists can also help families understand whether certain disorders are inherited (from the genes) and provide screening to members of the family who may be at risk of having children with similar problems.
