Neurogenetics Clinic

The neurogenetics clinic provides genetic assessment, screening, diagnosis, counselling and treatment to Albertans across their lifespan who are either at risk to develop or affected with a neurogenetic condition.

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

Genetic counselling is provided to patients to explore applicable inheritance patterns and the benefits, risks, and limitations of genetic testing (if indicated) for both the patient and any at risk relatives.

Examples of neurogenetic conditions include Huntington's disease, myotonic dystrophy, hereditary spastic paraparesis, and ataxia among others.

For more information visit the Clinical & Metabolic Genetics website.

This service is available to individuals who are affected with or at moderate to high risk for neurogenetic conditions. Risk level is determined by genetic risk evaluation of the individual's medical and family history.
