The Heritable Liver Disease Genetic Testing Service is a collaboration between the Laboratory of Genetics and Genomics and Jorge Bezerra, MD, director of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and
Nutrition, the William Balisteri Chair in Pediatric Hepatology and medical director of the Pediatric Liver Care Center at Cincinnati Children's. This partnership allows for optimum care of your patients.
We are staffed by a team of experts who provide guidance in:
- Test selection
- Clinical interpretation
- Medical management and follow-up testing
- Recommendations for genetic counseling
- Coordination of studies for at-risk family members
- Billing and reimbursement
Clinical interpretations are written in conjunction with our nationally recognized pediatric gastroenterologist, board-certified molecular and medical geneticists and genetic counselors. Each report is customized for your patient and includes a detailed interpretation of the genetic findings, the clinical significance of the results and the specific recommendations for clinical management and additional testing, if warranted. These specialists are also available to you for pretest or additional post-test consultation.
