Sequencing the human genome was one of the major scientific achievements of the last 50 years. Now, this technology has transformed the way we approach and diagnose genetic disease. The Clinical Genomics Service at Stanford Medicine brings the power of genomic sequencing into the hands of our physicians and with it, the knowledge into the hands of our patients. At Stanford, we apply advanced genomic sequencing and expert interpretation to provide more personalized and precise clinical care.
Care and Treatment
Over the past several years, genome sequencing has demonstrated great promise, particularly in cases of rare diseases, where a patient and his or her family may have a genetic condition that thus far has eluded diagnosis. Already, thousands of families with genetic diseases have benefited from the power of this technology to discover the underlying cause of their condition. In some cases, identifying a genetic cause of disease may also provide important information related to personalized therapy and management.
At this time, the Clinical Genomics Service at Stanford Medicine will serve as a resource to both healthcare providers and patients, to conduct genomic sequencing in selected individuals who have an undiagnosed or rare condition that is believed to be genetic. We take referrals from health care providers specializing in heritable disorders at SHC and SCH.
Stanford Health Care provides comprehensive services to refer and track patients, as well as the latest information and news for physicians and office staff. For help with all referral needs and questions, visit Referring Physicians.
