Transforming Care through Genetics
Children's genes affect their health. If your child has an inherited condition, genetic testing can help. A simple genetics test can reveal the genetic factors behind the disorder and gives you and your doctor insight into the complexities of inherited conditions. A test shows your care team which treatment options would work best for your child's genetic makeup.
For physicians: Refer a patient to Sanford Health.
Your child's genetic team wants to help you make informed decisions about your family's health. You'll partner with pediatric geneticists and genetic counselors to help keep your child healthy.
Talk to us first for genetic testing recommendations. If we decide testing would be helpful, we'll identify the appropriate genetic tests for your child.
Sanford Health is proud to be a part of the Sanford Children's Genomic Medicine Consortium. This group brings together seven children's hospitals that collaborate to improve the diagnosis and treatment of a variety of childhood diseases—both common and rare.
