Genetics Division Overview

The Division of Genetics in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology includes a genetic-specialist physician and three genetic counselors, working in collaboration with the Maternal-Fetal Medicine Team.

The Division of Genetics provides the following services:

  • Screening for genetic disorders before or during pregnancy.

  • Coordination of prenatal screening and testing for fetal abnormalities. This includes risk assessment and counseling, so that you understand your results and choices throughout the screening and testing process.

  • Evaluation, diagnosis and counseling for pediatric patients with genetic disorders. This allows best treatment of the child and opens the way for risk assessment of other family members; it may also be possible to estimate recurrence risk in future pregnancies in the family.

  • Coordination of care for the range of health problems affecting children with genetic disorders. A cohesive network of services has been established in which the Pediatric Genetics Clinic refers its patients to specialists throughout the hospital.

  • In-house consultation for patients in West's Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
