The Medical Genetics Division is a treatment center for several enzyme replacement therapies in collaboration with the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Infusion Center and collaborates with the hospital's Bone Marrow Transplantation Program and Liver Transplant Program to offer transplantation as a “curative” therapy for some patients with select inborn errors of Metabolism.
The Division of Medical Genetics serves as a certified California Children’s Services Center (CCS) for metabolic and genetic diseases, which enables any child who is diagnosed with a disease that falls into one of these categories to receive treatment at our hospital as a CCS patient. It is also one of the largest CCS centers in the state for inborn errors of metabolism detected by newborn screening.
The Division receives more referrals for screen positive results for newborns than any other center in California.
