Penn State Health Pediatric Genetics

The Division of Human Genetics, Growth and Development provide comprehensive diagnostic and counseling services to individuals and families at risk for chromosomal or genetic diseases. The clinical genetics program uses a team approach that includes two clinical geneticists, a genetic counselor; developmentalists, and an education specialist. Consultants in neurology, cardiology, orthopedics, dermatology, ophthalmology, psychology, speech and hearing, and other specialties provide a multidisciplinary approach to the evaluation and treatment of individuals and their families. We evaluate children and adults with known or suspected chromosomal/genetic disorders and can provide consultation during pregnancy as well.
