A multidisciplinary PHS team collaborates to do everything possible to help our patients with chromosomal abnormalities live life to the fullest – at home.
There are many types of chromosomal abnormalities. Genes make up the chromosomes and give each individual his or her own unique characteristics. Chromosomes come in pairs. Each person usually has 46 chromosomes, 23 from the mother and 23 from the father. Sometimes, the chromosome pairs get mixed up, and too many or too few chromosomes may end up together or in different sequences, resulting in a chromosomal abnormality. While parents often think they are responsible for the chromosomal abnormalities, this is usually not the case. Consultation by a geneticist is extremely helpful to review a new diagnosis and in finding avenues of support and follow-up. Chromosomal abnormalities have implications for future pregnancies.
