PROGRAMS AND SERVICES

NEWBORN SCREENING PROGRAM

The Division of Medical Genetics offers treatment and genetic counseling and follow-up to families affected by one of 40-plus disorders that are ascertained on newborn screening.

Abnormal test results are communicated to the newborn's primary care physician, allowing for collaboration with Division physicians. Our nursing staff work with our physicians to communicate confirmatory testing required and to answer questions that referring physicians and anxious parents have.

STAFF EXPERTISE

Our expert physicians serve on national and international committees and conduct research to contribute to care for metabolic disease and other hereditary disorders.

KYLEE'S STORY

Kylee Postel is 10 years old and one of the biggest advocates for mitochondrial disease. She’s been battling the disease since she was born and has undergone over two dozen surgeries, many of them performed at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.

COMFORT FOR FAMILIES

Our staff provide a comfortable, friendly environment for patients and families. Our goal is to educate you about your child's condition and prognosis, available treatments, and the likelihood of other children having similar conditions.

PRENATAL DIAGNOSIS

One of the services that we offer parents is the ability to provide a prenatal diagnosis for parents planning to have additional children.

To accomplish this, we work in close collaboration with the OB/GYN Perinatal Division of the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California.
