Detecting possible inherited conditions
You can come directly to the Centre for Medical Genetics (CMG) to have any condition you suspect that you may have inherited detected. This also applies for rare conditions.
Collaboration with experts at home or abroad
During or after the first consultation we check whether the examination is carried out in the CMG or in collaboration with another centre. There are many specialisations in genetics. Therefore, if necessary, the CMG is happy to call on the expertise of colleagues from both home or abroad.
Some consultations are dealt with at a multidisciplinary level. You then speak not only to the geneticist, but if appropriate also with another specialist and counsellor, or with a psychologist and social care nurse. The consultations where a multidisciplinary approach is key are marked with an asterisk in the list below.
