Clinical Interest for Patients
I am a Clinical Geneticist, first and foremost, with special expertise and interest in inborn errors of metabolism, especially urea cycle disorders and fatty acid oxidation disorders, Prader-Willi syndrome, and generally, rare genetic disorders. Development of new approaches to management and treatment of genetic and metabolic disorders is a key to our practice, which is at the cutting edge where science and technology meet clinical care. The rapid translation of scientific advances to clinical care is at the heart of our team's work.
Most of us know that our genetic make-up is fundamental to how our body works, but when faced with the possibility of a genetic related disease, the implications can feel very frightening, complex and intense. A knowledgeable and kind professional can be incredibly helpful at that time to understand complex risks and healthcare decisions. Our team takes a holistic approach to the needs of the individual and the family. At the same time, having an expert in rare diseases, someone who has heard of, and knows about, the condition you are facing, is helpful and important. We know that genetic conditions can be managed, treated, and outcomes can improve.
