Treatments and Procedures
Geneticists at Kamineni Hospitals offer reliable and accurate genetic testing procedures. Based on the results they provide the most appropriate treatment for the patient. Genetic professionals or geneticists work closely with patients to detect and find out the chances of passing that condition to the next generations.
These are voluntary tests so a person should consult a genetic consult before going for the tests. Geneticists will look for changes in genes, chromosomes, and proteins to determine genetic disorders.
Based on the symptoms and suspected genetic disorder, geneticists conduct the appropriate test for patients. These genetic tests will provide the medical specialist with a clear understanding of the disorders the patient is suffering from. Some of the common genetic testing procedures are
Geneticists at Kamineni Hospitals are skilled and experienced in conducting molecular tests. These tests help geneticists in analyzing biological markers in the genome and proteome. During these tests, geneticists look for changes in one or more genes.
Molecular tests are further divided into 4 subdivisions that help in analyzing particular variations in one or more genes.
- Targeted Single Variant
- Single Gene
- Gene Panel
- Whole-exome/genome sequencing
Chromosomal tests help geneticists to identify changes in chromosomes. Chromosome changes include duplicated or deleted chromosomes. It mainly helps in looking for large-scale changes. These changes in chromosomes caused specific medical conditions in patients. It can be done when one of these medical symptoms is suspected.
Gene Expression Tests
Gene expression tests help geneticists in identifying high-level or low-level activity in cells. Generally, cells produce mRNA to generate protein. This test helps in identifying high mRNA in cells to see which cells are active or not active. This helps in identifying many cancer cells and genetic disorders.
In this procedure, geneticists don’t analyze DNA directly. It involves studying proteins or enzymes generated by the genes. Any type of abnormalities in this substance could lead to a specific genetic disorder.
Geneticists at Kamineni Hospitals are considered as one of trusted and reliable medical specialists in treating a wide range of genetic disorders. They are skilled in conducting various diagnostic tests and providing the most effective treatment possible.
Most genetic disorder treatment doesn’t influence or change the genetic mutation. However, some genetic disorders can be cured with the help of the right treatment like gene therapy.
Gene therapy involves adding or removing genes in your body to promote health and treat genetic disorders. This therapy helps your body to fight diseases effectively.
Gene therapy techniques
Replacing Mutated Genes – Replacing defective genes with healthy genes
Fixing Mutated Genes- turning off the defective genes and stimulating the healthy genes
Enhancing the Immune System- eliminating diseases genes with the help of the Immune system
Along with this, geneticists at Kamineni Hospitals provide appropriate medications and necessary treatments. By employing the latest technology developments in genetic medicine and equipment our geneticists ensure personalized care for patients.
