Hello,welcome to HCM. PGD (Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis) is also referred to as embryo screening and is a procedure used on embryos before implantation, to screen for a variety of disorders. The most common disorders in question include cystic fibrosis, sickle cell disease, Huntington's disease and spinal muscular atrophy.
PGD is a procedure used alongside IVF and is carried out in order to increase the likelihood of an ongoing pregnancy and to prevent an inherited condition being passed on to the child.
I know about Malpani infertility clinic in mumbai offering this services but I am not aware of any such facility in bangalore. Wish you good health.

PGD is preimplantation genetic diagnosis wherein the embryo is tested for genetic abnormalities prior to implantation in the womb. This is recommended in couples undergoing assisted reproduction when they are known to be predisposed to having or have a family history of genetic abnormalities. You can consult any superspeciality Assisted reproduction clinic or hospital for this test. It is carried out by geneticists.
