As the field of precision medicine evolves, our Center for Personalized Medicine is translating new discoveries into care through a variety of innovative services.
Already our clinician experts are customizing treatment and therapies based on genomic information across multiple specialty areas including, but not limited to:
DNA analysis can greatly enhance patient care, from risk assessment to selecting the best medical prescription based on your unique genetic profile. At NorthShore, we offer state-of-the-art genetic testing and counseling to enhance diagnosis, screening and prevention of many hereditary diseases and conditions in adults as well as children.
Our recently established Pharmacogenomics Clinic provides expert guidance and genetic testing to optimize current and future drug therapy. By looking at medications known to have specific drug-gene interactions, from pain management to anti-anxiety drugs, we have the ability to better predict upfront the potential effectiveness of your therapy.
Interconnected through our extensive electronic medical record system, our team of experts ensures that you and your physician have access to your genomic information and can use it to tailor care and treatment to your very specific needs.
