Founded in 1965, Boston Children's Hospital Division of Genetics and Genomics provides comprehensive clinical care including diagnostics, genetic counseling and individualized management in concert with other specialties for people of all ages.
As one of the largest pediatric genetics practices in the country, we have experience with both common conditions and very rare conditions affecting just a few hundred children in the world. We specialize in finding answers for complex and hard-to-diagnose genetic conditions, sometimes applying new technologies through our research labs when existing genetic tests are negative or inconclusive.
Our large program includes more than 30 board-certified clinical geneticists, genetic counselors, dieticians, and nursing staff. In addition to the main hospital in Boston, we see patients at our Brockton, Lexington, Norwood, Peabody, Waltham, and Weymouth locations.
We also work closely with the Maternal Fetal Care Center (MFCC), which supports the needs of expectant families whose unborn babies have confirmed or suspected congenital anomalies.
