Preimplant Genetic Diagnostics

Preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) is a diagnosis of genetic and chromosomal alterations in embryos before implantation to ensure that children are born free of inherited diseases.

This technique aims to avoid the transmission of hereditary diseases when there is a history of genetic diseases such as cystic fibrosis, thalassemia, muscular dystrophy, etc.; or chromosomal diseases, such as Turner syndromes, Down syndrome, etc., either in father's family or mother's family.

This assisted reproduction technique always requires an In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) treatment with Sperm Injection (ICSI), to have the embryos in the laboratory, of which cells for the study were obtained and vitrified (frozen) for use in the future, after obtaining the results of the study.

This treatment will be available soon in our Assisted Reproduction Center.
