The department of Genetic Medicine provides comprehensive services for a variety of patients and their families with genetic and metabolic disorders. MMI prides itself on the ability to diagnose anomalies using genetic testing. In 80 percent of cases, families change the management of the disorder following a genetic diagnosis.

Genetic Medicine Services

MMI geneticists and genetic counselors assist individuals and families in understanding the diagnosis, treatment and management of a genetic or metabolic disorder. They offer advice on recurrence risks and future family implications, in addition to helping parents gain an understanding of what may have caused the anomaly. Our Genetic Counselors help to identify resources in collaboration with school systems, assist with treatment plans, navigate insurance coverage and coordinate referrals to other agencies and support groups associated with a specific diagnosis.

Not only does MMI offer these services in the Omaha metro area, but clinics for children with special needs are offered at outreach clinics in Gordon, Kearney, Lincoln, North Platte and Scottsbluff. You can attend the nearest clinic by contacting your family physician or the genetics clinic coordinator at the respective location.
