Genetic heart condition treatment

El Centro de Genética es el único centro dedicado a enfermedades cardiovasculares hereditarias en el norte de Texas que cuenta con un asesor en genética cardiovascular que ofrece una gama completa de servicios para enfermedades cardíacas genéticas raras. Esta característica es un componente crítico que diferencia los programas académicos de genética cardiovascular de los centros de genética médica general.

The genetic counselor spends one-on-one time with patients to understand a multigenerational family history. The counselor provides patients with a full explanation of the risks, benefits and limitations of genetic heart condition testing in Plano.

The center staff works closely with surgeons on the medical staff of Baylor Scott & White The Heart Hospital – Plano when evaluating patients whose heart conditions may require surgical intervention.

Genetic heart conditions we treat

Family medical history plays an important role in the accurate diagnosis of certain heart rhythm abnormalities and thoracic aortic syndromes.

Patients are typically referred for suspected or confirmed family-dominant heart conditions, such as:


  • Síndrome de QT largo
  • Síndrome de QT corto
  • Síndrome de Brugada


  • Síndrome de Marfan
  • Síndrome de Loeys/Dietz
