Dr Tween can undertake pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) and pre-implantation genetic screening (PGS) to test embryos for genetic conditions and undertake chromosomal screening, identifying the most appropriate ones to transfer.
Couples who have a family history of a genetic condition may choose to avoid passing the condition onto their offspring. PGD can be used to identify the embryos without the genetic condition, before transferring them back to the woman’s womb. PGS is the technology to biopsy and test embryos for chromosomal abnormality. By transferring the normal, tested embryo, you have an improved chance of a successful pregnancy.
The easing of restrictions all around Australia due to low COVID-19 infection rates is encouraging, but it is still important that we take precautions to prevent transmission. Face-to-face appointments are available, but we will also continue to offer telehealth services with a Medicare rebate under the COVID-19 temporary MBS telehealth services.
We are currently updating our communication procedures. We encourage you to email us at email@example.com if you have any questions or would like to book an appointment.
