Genetic Connective Tissues Disorders Clinic

Provides genetic assessment, screening, diagnosis, counselling and treatment to Albertans across the lifespan who are at risk for or affected with connective tissues disorders.

The consultation service begins with an assessment of a patient's personal and family history for features of a suspected condition.

Genetic counselling is then provided to patients who meet the criteria, to share genetic risk information, discuss the benefits, risk, limitations of genetic testing if indicated and available for the patient and / or at risk-relatives.

Examples of connective tissue disorders include Marfan syndrome, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, Stickler syndrome, and many others.

Individuals and families referred may include pregnant couples, newborns, children or adults.
