Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome is a genetic connective tissue disorder, caused by a defect in a protein called collagen. As there are over 30 types of collagen in the body, Ehlers-Danlos can be very difficult to diagnose.
The Hypermobility Unit at the Hospital of St John & St Elizabeth is a specialist centre for the diagnosis and management of Ehlers-Danlos, and all hypermobility-related disorders. Treatment at the Unit is tailored to the needs of each individual, depending on their condition.
As the only facility of its kind, The Hypermobility Unit receives referrals from around the world and its large multidisciplinary team comprises many of the world’s leading experts on hypermobility.
