What We Do

​​​​​T​he Dalglish Family 22q Clinic is the world's first multidisciplinary clinic devoted to adults with 22q11.2 deletion syndrome (22q11.2DS) and their families. Previously referred to as DiGeorge Syndrome or velo-cardio-facial syndrome, 22q11.2DS is caused by a missing piece (deletion) of genetic material (DNA) on chromosome 22. Numerous health issues, involving many parts of the body, are associated with this genetic condition.

Patients and their families often visit multiple hospitals to see several specialists. Our highly trained health care professionals provides the most specialized, collaborative and multidisciplinary care to ensure that you receive seamless and coordinated care, all in one clinic.
