Fabry Disease Clinics in Australia & New Zealand

Fabry disease, is a progressive multisystem disease which can impact quality of life (QoL) of both male and female patients (adults and children). People diagnosed with Fabry disease are encouraged to be seen regularly by a Clinic (whether or not they receive specific Fabry disease therapy such as Enzyme Replacement Therapy) to keep an eye on progression of Fabry disease symptoms. Frequency of visits is usually 1-2 times a year but it can vary patient to patient. 

The list of clinics below are managed by Doctors who have knowledge and experience in caring for patients with Fabry disease. Fabry patients need to bring a GP referral letter with them to the Clinic appointment. It is important for all Fabry patients (male, female, adult and children, on ERT or not on ERT) are seen regularly by a Fabry Clinic to keep a check on the patient's progression of the disease. Even if patients are not particularly 'unwell'. Any questions about appointments or to make an appointment, please contact the Fabry Clinic directly. The Clinic appointment cost in Australia is covered by Medicare.
