Dr. Kennedy Pediatric geneticists treat children from birth (and in some cases even before birth) through adolescence and into adulthood. Pediatric geneticists diagnose, counsel, and treat families with many different kinds of problems including the following:

  • Birth defects (physical differences present at birth causing a health problem)
  • Conditions with one or more birth defects (Down syndrome, Williams syndrome, or achondroplasia)
  • Conditions that can cause disabilities (fetal alcohol syndrome, or fragile X syndrome)
  • Inborn errors of metabolism (cystic fibrosis, phenylketonuria, or sickle cell disease)
  • Familial or hereditary problems (congenital heart disease or hypercholesterolemia)
  • Short or tall stature (height that is significantly below or above normal range)
