Inherited metabolic disorders care at Mayo Clinic

Your Mayo Clinic care team

The key to accurate diagnoses of inherited metabolic disorders includes coordination among different medical specialties. Depending on the type and severity of the disorder and your age, your Mayo Clinic team of experts may include specialists in pediatrics, developmental pediatrics, neurology, endocrinology, medical genetics, nutrition and other areas.

Advanced diagnosis and treatment

Mayo Clinic's laboratories use state-of-the-art methods to identify inherited metabolic disorders. Identifying and treating inherited metabolic disorders in newborns before symptoms appear can dramatically improve outcomes.

Nationally recognized expertise

Inherited metabolic disorders are rare and complex, so it can be difficult to find physicians with expertise. Mayo Clinic doctors see more than 600 people with inherited metabolic disorders each year.

Mayo Clinic Children’s Center has again been ranked as the top performing children’s hospital in Minnesota, the Dakotas and Iowa on U.S. News & World Report’s 2017–2018 Best Children’s Hospitals rankings.
