Leading-Edge Care for Our Littlest Patients

Genetic disorders are caused by a faulty gene or chromosome during a baby’s development, and they can alter how a specific organ works, change how a baby develops, and cause various other health problems. 

Common genetic disorders include: 

  • Cystic fibrosis
  • Ataxia
  • Muscular dystrophy
  • Down syndrome
  • Sickle cell anemia
  • Rett syndrome

We test for genetic disorders while your baby is still in the womb, and if we detect any issues, we’ll discuss options for treating and managing these conditions. Sometimes, these disorders may not be a problem after birth.

Chromosomal abnormalities are genetic disorders that can affect a child’s development, and they can cause conditions such as Down syndrome, sickle cell disease, and cystic fibrosis.

Chromosomal abnormalities can be caused by factors such as:

  • Too many chromosomes
  • Too few chromosomes
  • Incomplete or rearranged chromosomes 
  • Gene mutations

Symptoms of chromosomal abnormalities will vary, but may include:

  • Unusual facial or body structure
  • Seizures
  • Cognitive disability
  • Organ dysfunction

Our specialists at San Martín Hospital will screen for chromosomal abnormalities during your pregnancy, and if necessary, we’ll work with you to develop a plan for treating and managing your child’s condition.

Fetal surgery is a highly specialized field involving a team of medical professionals who know how to support the health of both the baby and mother. Using the latest minimally invasive techniques, our surgeons at San Martín Hospital can correct health issues before a baby is born. 

Doctors can use prenatal surgery to treat: 

  • Spina bifida
  • Lung masses
  • Amniotic band syndrome
  • Urinary tract obstruction
  • Congenital diaphragmatic hernia
  • Sacrococcygeal teratoma

If fetal surgery is recommended, we’ll act quickly to protect your baby’s health, and our team will go over what you can expect moving forward.
