Our mission is to advance knowledge in personalized medicine by translating the newest discoveries into bedside care. As the only freestanding children’s hospital in Southern Florida, Nicklaus Children’s strives to be cutting-edge.
Nicklaus Children’s is one of seven children’s hospitals in the Sanford Children’s Genomic Medicine Consortium, an innovative collaboration of hospitals across the nation inspired by philanthropist Denny Sanford. This partnership allows us to bring the most innovate advancements in personalized care to the families we serve.
There is a need for primary care physicians and specialists to incorporate personalized medicine and genomics into their practice. For the primary care physician, taking a detailed family history may offer insight into health conditions for which your patient is at higher risk. For a cardiothoracic surgeon, 3D tissue printing can create a surgical model that allows for smaller surgical incision. Learn more about areas of personalized medicine through our resources.
