Targeting the causes of genetic disease, doctors are now transforming patients' lives.
The Gene Doctors
Every year, over a million babies are born worldwide with a hereditary disease. Many are serious, some fatal.

Through intimate stories of families whose lives are being transformed, The Gene Doctors takes viewers to the frontlines of a medical revolution.
