What is congenital disorder treatment?
Treatment varies widely based on the type of congenital disorder.
1. Gene therapy - It replaces a gene that is either missing or defective.
2. Enzyme replacement therapy - When a gene is mutated and does not produce the gene product, an enzyme is missing or defective.
3. Prenatal treatment - Some birth defects can be diagnosed and treated before birth. Prenatal surgery, for instance, can treat babies with urinary tract blockages and rare lung tumors.
