  • Experience. Ehlers-Danlos is a rare condition, so it can be difficult to find a doctor that has experience in treating the disorder. Mayo Clinic doctors see hundreds of people with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome every year.
  • Team approach. Ehlers-Danlos syndrome affects many different body systems, so it's important to have different specialists involved in your care. At Mayo Clinic, your team may include specialists in medical genetics, physical medicine and rehabilitation, orthopedics, dermatology, and neurology — as well as vascular, cardiovascular, neurologic and pediatric surgeons, if necessary.
  • Long-term management. The goal at Mayo Clinic is to establish a long-term management plan for people with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome to be managed by their local primary care physician.
