Inherited Metabolic Disorders

Inherited Metabolic Disorders are biochemical conditions that are genetic and can cause a person to become very ill. Inherited Metabolic Disorders can be fatal. When interventions and treatments are started early, the severity of the condition usually lessens. Often, treatment prevents the condition from developing.

Our knowledge of Inherited Metabolic Disorders continues to grow and our program is expanding to meet the needs of our community and surrounding areas. Our specialized team is able to offer excellent care to all our patients in a timely fashion, which is most important when dealing with inherited metabolic conditions that can affect newborns shortly after birth.
