Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PDG) is a very complex procedure that is done for couple with genetic disorders, in order to give the the security of having a healthy baby. It is a process that involves carefully and accurately assessing the genetics of the embryos. The is done before the implantation of the embryo into the woman's uterus. It is applied more in cases where couples have genes responsible for genetic diseases (eg. anemia Mediterranean, muscular dystrophy, cystic fibrosis, etc..). With PGD only healthy embryos are chosen so that a pregnancy will not be interrupted or embryonic problems will not be created. PGD also applies to couples who are already parents of a genetically challenged child, and would like to prevent the occurrence of that happening again. Also, it may be for those who have inherited diseases, but also in cases of failure with the nesting of the embryos due to karyotypic-chromosomal abnormalities or even in cases of repeated abortions.
The Dogus IVF Centre has reached a commendably high degree of specialization with the PGD method. PGD is one of the most secure and efficient ways of ensuring that a woman has a healthy baby without any genetic defects. The use of genetic testing will be the safest option for starting a healthy family and it is highly advised in clinics all over the world.
