Pediatric Clinical Genetics

Pediatric geneticists at Karol Children's Hospital are trained to detect causes and history of disorders in patients aged 0-18 years. Pediatric geneticists may suggest some examinations to understand, which can help understand the child's condition. Our specialists also support families to know that some diseases are hereditary, and some tests may help present and future generations. Our Paediatric geneticists advise parents about their questions of hereditary and treat children from birth to adulthood.

Our Paediatric geneticists may treat and recommend in following conditions:

  • Congenital disabilities
  • Conditions like down syndrome, achondroplasia, or Williams Syndrome
