Montefiore-Einstein Regional Center for 22q11.2 Deletion Syndrome

The genetic disorder known as 22q11.2 deletion syndrome (22q11.2DS), also called DiGeorge syndrome or Velo-cardio-facial syndrome, is caused by a microdeletion of part of the long arm of chromosome 22. The frequency is reported to be about one of every 4,000 live births. Numerous medical issues can affect children diagnosed with 22q11.2DS, so it is essential that they receive care from a large number of medical and allied healthcare professionals.

At the Montefiore-Einstein Regional Center for 22q11.2DS, care is delivered by a team of professionals who have experience and expertise in working with patients and families carrying the deletion. We work in unison, communicating and sharing information to formulate an effective treatment plan and intervention tailored to the patient and family.
