General information about online genetic consultation
What is online genetic consultation?
Human genetic counseling is a detailed discussion in which questions about hereditary diseases are answered, and information is provided. Those seeking advice may be affected patients, relatives who fear that they themselves may be carriers of the disease, or (expectant) parents who would like information about the risks of inheritance. The consulting physician is a specialist in human genetics and focuses on hereditary diseases, modes of inheritance, and scientific approaches to diagnosis and treatment.
Together with you, we would like to find out within the framework of online genetic counseling whether further genetic testing makes sense in your individual case. We will help you weigh possible risks and include therapy options in your considerations. Based on the data of your family tree and the collected findings, we can also calculate the recurrence risk for a certain disease pattern.
