The Clinical Genetics team at Boston Children’s Hospital provides comprehensive diagnostic services and genetic counseling to pregnant women, newborns, children and adults with a known or suspected genetic disorder. As one of the largest pediatrics genetics groups in the country, we have experience with both common conditions, such as autism and muscular dystrophy, and very rare conditions affecting just a few hundred children in the world.
Your geneticist and genetic counselor will work with you to determine the best tests for you or your child, and may suggest testing for other family members. Because many genetic disorders affect multiple organs in the body, our team can connect you with medical specialists across the hospital and follow you or your child over time.
We offer particular expertise in metabolic disorders, congenital malformations, developmental disorders and chromosomal disorders. Click at left to learn more about our specialty programs. These multidisciplinary programs coordinate care across different medical departments and allow us to conduct studies aimed at finding new treatments.
In addition to the main hospital in Boston, we also see patients at our Brockton, Lexington, Norwood, Peabody, Waltham and Weymouth locations.
We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
