The Edmonton Down Syndrome Clinic
Since 2008, The Edmonton Down Syndrome (Ds) clinic has supported families who have children ages 0-20 years old with a diagnosis of Down syndrome.
Operating out of the Stollery Children’s Hospital, the purpose of the Edmonton Down Syndrome Clinic is to provide education and information to patients, families and healthcare professionals about the resources available to people with Down syndrome.
We ensure that the recommended medical guidelines for Down syndrome are being followed. Currently, over 350 children and families are seen as inpatients and outpatients at the clinic.
The clinic is led by Dr. Melanie Lewis, and supported by the Nurse Coordinator, Gayle Krupa. The Clinic Coordinator acts as a link between families and community programs to help coordinate care.
In 2016, two Edmonton physicians from the Oliver Primary Care Network (PCN) agreed to take create a clinic for adults born with Down syndrome.
