The Division of Clinical Genetics at Nicklaus Children's Hospital, formerly Miami Children's Hospital, provides expert diagnosis, counseling, and treatment for a wide range of genetic disorders in children. A clinical geneticist and genetic counselor evaluate infants and children with developmental delays, unusual facial features, metabolic disorders, seizures, craniofacial anomalies, and failure to thrive. These are some of the reasons for which children are referred for evaluation by clinical geneticists. Prenatal patients are also seen for genetic counseling in advance of a planned pregnancy as well as for potential genetic problems in an ongoing pregnancy.
The Division of Clinical Genetics at Nicklaus Children's Hospital, formerly Miami Children's Hospital, is one of the few state designated craniofacial centers in the country. The practice focuses on family-centered, multidisciplinary care for genetic disorders in children.
