Professional Bio

Anne V. Hing, MD, is attending physician at Seattle Children's Hospital, associate professor in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Washington School of Medicine and an adjunct faculty member in the Division of Medical Genetics. Her clinical interests include the diagnosis and management of infants, children and adolescents with craniofacial and genetic conditions. She works in the Craniofacial and Craniofacial Genetics Clinic and the Limb Deficiency Clinic. She also serves as a genetics consultant in seven different outreach genetics clinics throughout the states of Washington and Alaska. She coordinates the craniofacial resident elective course and provides bedside teaching. She has served as Seattle Children's principal investigator in a multi-center international study of the genetics of cleft lip and palate for the past six years. She is collecting pilot data for a future genetic study of sagittal synostosis using novel quantitative measures of head shape.
