Dr. Plotnikoff Authors First-Ever Genomics Chapter for Celebrated Medical Textbook

February 8, 2023

We are proud to announce that our Founder and Medical Director Gregory A. Plotnikoff, MD, MTS, FACP has authored the first chapter ever on “Genomic Testing” for Conn’s Current Therapy 2023 medical textbook.

This celebrated medical textbook, now in its 75th year, is a valuable resource for a wide range of healthcare professionals, including primary care, sub-specialists and more.

Dr. Plotnikoff’s chapter on genomic testing describes the ongoing genomic revolution and identifies new clinician competencies that accompany three categories of technological breakthroughs:

  1. Genotyping
  2. cfDNA analyses (Cell-free DNA blood tests)
  3. Whole exome sequencing (WES)/Whole gene sequencing (WGS)

Each section addresses both the current and future implications for enhanced clinical management.

At Minnesota Personalized Medicine, our physicians are skilled in the use of genomic testing to support both diagnosis and treatment. This also includes knowing when not to use genomic testing, as well as knowing the current limitations of genetic testing.

Call us at (612) 345-5029 to learn more or schedule an appointment to see if genomic testing may benefit you.
