Carolina Conceptions is CLOSED on Thursday, November 24, 2022, in observance of Thanksgiving. Central Raleigh and North Raleigh satellite clinic will remain closed Friday, November 25. Our East Wilmington satellite clinic will be open 7:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. on Friday.

Join Dr. Bill Meyer and Head Embryologist, Dr. Sung Tae Kim, for a rare, behind the scenes look at our ivf lab. Today, Dr. Kim is completing an embryo biopsy for PGS (Preimplantation Genetic Screening). Genetic screening, PGS, and PGD have dramatically DECREASED miscarriage rates and INCREASED the live birth rates of children born as a result of IVF. These techniques make it possible for our ivf team to determine if an embryo is chromosomally “normal” prior to uterine transfer.

 

Dr. Meyer narrates as Dr. Kim performs embryo biopsy.
