Genomic Medicine

The Apollo Centre of Genomic Medicine, launched in Chennai, Navi Mumbai, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Ahmedabad, and Kolkata provides comprehensive care to patients and families with genetic disorders. It involves the study of how genetic and hereditary factors contribute to diseases, birth defects, and inherited health problems. Genetic variations arise due to mutations or changes in the DNA sequence. These variations can be inherited from parents or acquired during a person’s lifetime. Some genetic variations have no significant impact on health, while others can lead to inherited disorders or increase the risk of developing certain diseases.

The Apollo Centre of Genomic Medicine at Apollo Hospitals is a leading center for genetic testing and counseling. Genetic testing can identify specific mutations responsible for a condition and provide information about the inheritance pattern. There are several reasons to consider genetic testing, such as:

  • Identifying people at risk of developing a disease before symptoms appear.
  • Confirming a diagnosis for a disease that may be caused by genetic changes.
  • Identifying if someone is a carrier for a genetic illness.
  • Guiding treatment plans for certain genetic illnesses.
  • Understanding and guiding cancer prevention or treatment plans.
  • Knowing if a future or present pregnancy will have any genetic disorder.

The Apollo Centre of Genomic Medicine is comprised of a multidisciplinary team of specialists, including genetic counselors, clinical geneticists, etc. who work closely with the patients of all age group to provide comprehensive care to patients with genetic conditions, offering genetic testing, counseling, and personalized treatment plans. They work in a variety of settings, including clinical care and research. Our specialists are committed to delivering compassionate care and empowering patients with the knowledge they need to make informed decisions about their health.
