We offer one of the most well established and premier prenatal diagnosis programs in the Metropolitan New York City/Westchester County area. Our program is based on the collaborative efforts of a dedicated multi-disciplinary team of physicians, genetic counselors, and research scientists working in a state-of-the-art genetic testing laboratory.
While genetic research and information is growing at a rapid pace, our mission has remained the same: to provide a comprehensive, expert Medical Genetics service program for the prevention, diagnosis and management of genetic problems related to pregnancy.
The program focuses exclusively on the interaction of genetics and pregnancy with over 1500 amniocenteses performed yearly.
Because our program prides itself on its multidisciplinary approach to genetic disorders, our team is made up of professionals with a broad range of expertise including:
If an abnormality is detected or further follow-up is required, our program works very closely with other state-of-the-art programs at Montefiore Medical Center, including experts in fetal heart ultrasound, pediatric surgery and other specialties. To provide the most comprehensive care possible, a full service genetics laboratory is available on site, directed by PhDs who specialize in genetic testing.
