Medical genetics is the branch of medicine concerned with how hereditary and genetic factors play a role in causing a disease, birth defects, or inherited susceptibility to a health problem. The Division of Medical Genetics offers comprehensive evaluation and treatment for known or suspected inherited disorders.
Pediatric genetics focuses on the evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of genetic causes of disease in children and adolescents. Our clinicians evaluate patients for dysmorphic features, metabolic conditions, and heritable syndromes. Additionally, we see individuals with personal or family histories of cancer as well as individuals with known mutations in the family. Our team members work together in an evaluation that often consists of patient history, family history, physical exam, and genetic testing. Finding a genetic cause can allow planning for the child’s current and future needs.
Our clinical team includes three board-certified geneticists, two nurse practitioners, four board-certified genetic counselors, and two metabolic dietitians who serve the adult, pediatric, and prenatal patient populations of Mississippi.
