Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis – PGD

PGD allows the screening of a single cell from embryos to determine whether genetic disorders or chromosomal abnormalities exist. By identifying abnormal embryos, we can ensure that only unaffected embryos are transferred back into the patient.  This increases the chances of having a healthy baby. This testing is typically recommended when one or both prospective parents are carriers of genetic disorders.*

*While there are additional charges associated with this type of testing, it does increase chances of pregnancy, and may be recognized by your insurance as a covered service for reasons of medical necessity in some cases.
