Mount Sinai Comprehensive Gaucher Disease Treatment Center
The Mount Sinai Comprehensive Gaucher Disease Treatment Center represents one of the largest clinics in the world devoted to the diagnosis and treatment of Gaucher disease. Named after the doctor, Philippe Gaucher, who originally described it, Gaucher disease is a genetic disorder in which a fatty substance, glucocerebroside, accumulates in the spleen, liver, lungs, bone marrow, and sometimes the brain.
Our comprehensive clinical and research program offers complete evaluation and treatment, as well as counseling for couples at risk to have children with Gaucher disease. Research includes basic and clinical-related studies, including a variety of molecular techniques to uncover the basis of clinical heterogeneity, and clinical investigations seeking to elucidate the natural history of Gaucher disease.
An expert team of subspecialists in clinical genetics, genetic counseling, radiology, orthopedics, pain management, hematology, and obstetrics/gynecology is experienced in the latest techniques for the evaluation, diagnosis, and individualized treatment of adults and children. All of our physicians and genetic counselors are board certified or board eligible by the American Board of Medical Genetics and the American Board of Genetic Counseling.
