Genetics, Metabolism and Dysmorphology

Genetics is the medical specialty that provides diagnosis, counseling and care for families and individuals of all ages who have or are at risk for a genetic disorder or birth defect. Some people come to a genetics clinic to learn whether a disorder is inherited and what the chances are their children will be affected. Other people with genetic disorders receive ongoing care at the clinic. Everyone who comes to the clinic learns how to lower their risks and ways to stay healthy and prevent medical complications from their disorder. Children's Hospital at University of Missouri Health Care has genetics clinics in Columbia and various satellite sites throughout the state. Medical geneticists and genetic counselors provide evaluation, diagnostic testing, counseling, and follow-up care at these clinics.
