Besides Samsun and Erzurum provinces, in only Trabzon province of our region, Medical Genetics Polyclinic of Kanuni Training and Research Hospital,in coordination with KTU, Farabi Hospital, provides top level service to our people.

Medical Genetics Polyclinic of Kanuni Training and Research Hospital offers service in the following conditions:

  • In cases with recurrent miscarriages or stillbirth history (Chromosomal analysis and coagulation tests),

  • In conditions with coagulation susceptibility,

  • In specific hematologic diseases (JAK-2 test), the related genetic tests are performed.

    Examinations of patients with anomaly (dysmorphic appearance),

  • And counselling service is given for all genetic diseases other than these.

Medical genetics polyclinic provides service to individuals/couples, who are under risk of either having genetic disease or having baby with genetic disease, and is in close collaboration with specialties in almost all disciplines.

In present conditions in which increasing knowledge in genetics is rapidly accompanied by technological advances, this service is given in many diseases together with clinical and laboratory diagnostic tests. In this way, the course and treatment of disease can be planned most appropriately.

Medical genetics focuses on not only applying person but also all family members having blood relation with him/her. Our polyclinic can determine the risk of every family member, and contributes significantly to decrease in prevalance of disease in future generations.

Genetic counselling is the process of giving detailed information related with disease to people either with a hereditary disease or having risk of hereditary disease/carrying. Given information includes diagnostic tests, the course of disease, recurrence risk, disease burden, and its treatment, if any. This process is only informative and it does not direct the patient. Therefore, in order to get reliable and correct information about diseases, receiving genetic counselling service from a medical genetics specialist is absolutely recommended.

Patients applying to our medical genetics polyclinic are followed in collaboration with other departments. In order to diagnose a disease, it is not always necessary for a Medical Genetics Specialist to make a test. In this case, Medical Genetics Specialist makes a diagnosis through clinical examination and informs the family about risks with the help of pedigree information.

In conclusion, patient assessment, diagnosis and treatment guide, genetic counselling, and evaluations of genetic tests done in our laboratory are performed.
