KIMS Hospitals is one of the first centers in India to establish the Department of Genetics that is equally committed to offering genetic services to patients and involved in advanced research in various fields of medical genetics.

The Genetic expert assists the doctors of all specialties at KIMS and other hospitals in diagnosing rare genetic conditions, helping the patient and their referring doctor in understanding the genetic etiology, available preventative reproductive options such as prenatal diagnosis and prenatal screening, preventive genetic testing and counselling, precision oncology testing and counselling, management plans of the genetic syndromes.


The KIMS Genetics team is constantly involved in spreading awareness among both the health care professionals and also for the public corporate sector. This is done by conducting health awareness talks in various corporate, social organizations and institutes, remote villages with high incidence of genetic diesease.

Genetic awareness, especially among the young population (those yet to marry or couple who are planning a family) can prevent them from the emotional and economic burden of genetic diseases in their children in the future. Knowing your genetic carrier status for common diseases such as Beta Thalassemia, sickle cell disease, spinal muscular atrophy etc. can help you prevent severe life-threatening genetic diseases in your children.

If you or your firm/hospital is interested in having an awareness talk by our Genetic specialist, we would be happy to do this as our social responsibility. Please contact Dr. Pavani Upendram at 040-71225009.
