With two board certified medical geneticists on staff, the Perinatal Center is unique in its focus on genetic issues. Consultation for preconception options for at-risk couples, or for a family history of genetic disorders, previous children with abnormalities, maternal age concerns, abnormal serum screening, recurrent pregnancy losses, or diagnosis of a existing or past abnormality in pregnancy is available in English, Spanish or French. When the diagnosis of an abnormality has been made, our team of specialists can find the right approach to determine if a future pregnancy is at risk, and determine if genetic testing is available.
Our team of specialists has performed thousands of fetal diagnostic procedures, such as
- First trimester screening and nuchal translucency
- Detailed fetal ultrasound (Level II or targeted), including Doppler waveform studies
- Transabdominal and transcervical chorionic villus sampling
- Placental biopsy
- Fetal monitoring with biophysical profiles and non-stress tests
These tests can identify fetal chromosomal abnormalities, congenital anomalies and fetal growth abnormalities—as well as confirm a healthy and beautiful baby. Tests are performed using the latest, top-of-the-line Phillips IU-22 equipment, with 2D/3D capabilities and expanded range for all maternal body types.
Our board certified medical geneticists provide confidential, sensitive genetic counseling and testing, for patients at risk for inherited cancer syndromes of the breast, ovary, colon or skin. We can determine if insurance coverage is available for testing, and blood for genetic testing can be drawn on site, with results available in two to three weeks. Patients with Medicaid may be eligible for genetic testing through participation in an on-going research program, which will cover the expense of the test.
