Coming to the Mitochondrial Program at Boston Children's

Before your visit to the Mitochondrial Program at Boston Children’s Hospital, we will ask you to send medical records from any previous evaluations your child may have had at other facilities.

You will also receive a questionnaire to help us better understand your concerns and your child’s medical history. Please fill it out! Mitochondrial disorders are complex and can cause a wide array of symptoms, so your input will help guide the diagnostic process, treatment plan and referrals to various specialists at the hospital.

Often we suggest that your child, and possibly family members, undergo genetic testing. Unfortunately, extensive genetic testing is not always covered by insurance, but if your child’s situation calls for it, we will work with your insurance companies to help with the process of approval.

We will coordinate your child’s ongoing care with specialists, such as cardiologists, endocrinologists or gastroenterologists, to manage specific symptoms. If at any time your child has to be admitted to Boston Children’s, our team will follow her while in the hospital.
