If you or your child have Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS), our clinic at UPMC Children's Hospital can help.
As the only interdisciplinary PWS clinic in the tri-state area (Pa., W.Va., and Ohio):
PWS is a genetic disorder that occurs in 1 out of every 15,000 births.
Most of the time, it's not inherited. Instead, it's caused by a random occurrence during early development of the fetus, which leads to loss of genetic material in one of the chromosomes (chromosome 15).
PWS can cause a range of symptoms that differ among people and can change over time.
Some symptoms include:
