What is Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis?

Preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) allows for the detection of life-altering genetic abnormalities prior to embryo transfer during IVF. The procedure can also help patients suffering from certain fertility challenges as well.

PGD is recommended for patients who are at an increased risk for genetic disorders, including those who are carriers for diseases such as cystic fibrosis, Tay Sachs, sickle cell, Huntington’s chorea, or Thalasemia. It is also helpful for patients who have no other known reason for infertility (unexplained infertility), recurrent pregnancy losses, advanced maternal age, repetitive IVF failures or male factor infertility.
