Ear, Nose, and Throat

The ear is essential for many of our most basic functions. It is crucial to distinguish between genetic disorders and those caused by environmental factors as early as possible. Rapid and informative postnatal testing for genetic disorders of the ear, nose, and throat allow for genetic counseling and may facilitate early interventions to significantly improve prognoses. We have identified genetic variants associated with diseases related to hearing -loss in over 190 different genes. Our testing options can help pinpoint the exact cause of inherited deafness and related syndromes.
