IGT Clinic

In the IGT department, over 6,000 patients are seen annually. Over time, as new technologies and procedures evolved, it was felt that families would benefit from having an opportunity to discuss with the IGT staff the procedures, its pros and cons, in an unhurried fashion to make the best, informed decision for their child. In 2004, the IGT clinic was created with its main objective to provide pre-procedure planning and direct communication with the child and their family. Most patients seen in the IGT Clinic are outpatients. Positive outcomes from the consultation include optimizing quality, efficiency and thorough patient care with improved workflow.
