Integrated Metabolic Liver Program at Mount Sinai

The Metabolic Genetics Group and Recanati Miller Transplantation Institute (RMTI) at Mount Sinai work together to treat pediatric patients with inherited disorders of metabolism. The group consists of doctors and specialists from the Division of Medical Genetics and Genomics, the Recanati Miller Transplantation Institute (RMTI), the Division of Pediatric Hepatology, and the Division of Pediatric Nephrology and Hypertension.

While organ transplant can be a very effective therapies for inherited disorders of metabolism, the path that patients and families follow can be very complex. Access to integrated and coordinated care is essential as the population navigates a complex care pathway with multiple obstacles, and put patients at risk for complications. Specialists at Mount Sinai are changing the care paradigm to deliver the best possible outcomes for our patients. We formalized an integrated approach that involves decision-making support beyond the acute and/or critical phases of illness, avoids siloed care, and addresses challenges for short-term course and long-term prognosis.
