Diagnosing and Managing Genetic Disorders in Las Vegas
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
- 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.
Detecting and Treating Chromosomal Abnormalities at San Martín Hospital
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
- 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.
The Latest Fetal Surgery Techniques
