At UCRM, our boarded certified endocrinologists and reproductive medicine specialists work closely with our patients to guide them through their journey and provide the best outcomes possible. IVF treatment is detailed and involved, but our physicians, nurses and staff are here to help explain the process and answer any questions you may have.

Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis

For couples considering IVF who are concerned about passing on an inherited genetic disease to their children, preimplanation genetic diagnosis (PGD) is an excellent treatment option available to UCRM.

Preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) refers specifically to when one or both genetic parents has a known genetic abnormality, and testing is performed on an embryo to see if it also carries a genetic abnormality. This allows couples choosing IVF to avoid passing on an inherited genetic disease to their children. The process is detailed, but our infertility experts will guide you through each step of the process and answer any questions you may have.

Most couples seeking PGD are aware of the genetic disorder and have already undergone testing to verify it. If testing is necessary to identify a genetic disorder, we will work with you to set up an appointment with a genetic counselor and schedule the appropriate testing. In either case, once we have received the test results we will assist you in setting up an IVF/PGD consultation appointment with one of our fertility specialists to describe the process and discuss your options.
