Cardiovascular Genetics Program
The Cardiovascular Genetics Program at Mount Sinai Heart is staffed by a multidisciplinary team of pediatric and adult cardiologists, geneticists, and genetic counselors dedicated to evaluating and counseling patients and families with genetic-based cardiovascular diseases.
Our expert physicians diagnose, prevent, and treat inherited cardiac defects.Highly specialized molecular tests are used to identify patients affected with or at risk for specific cardiovascular diseases.
From pre-conception counseling and fetal echocardiography to treatment of inherited disorders, our specialists are available to work with patients, families, and referring physicians to provide comprehensive services.
Our cardiovascular genetic research is using leading-edge approaches based on the Human Genome Project to identify additional genes causing these disorders. Our important discoveries include the Marfan syndrome gene and a gene for inherited patent ductus arteriosus. These and other scientific advances are providing the means to improve care for families inheriting cardiovascular genetic disorders.
