About the Connective Tissue Disorders Clinic
The Connective Tissue Disorders Clinic provides genetic evaluation and counseling for adult patients with a variety of connective tissue disorders such as Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. Patients with joint hypermobility, chronic pain, and/or symptoms of dysautonomia (dizziness, fainting, temperature intolerance) may be referred for genetic counseling and further diagnostic testing. Board-certified medical geneticists staff the clinic on select Thursdays and Fridays in the Clinical Genetics Suite at the Baylor College of Medicine Medical Center located at 7200 Cambridge St., Houston, TX 77030 in suite 9A.
