On Friday, August 19 all Carolina Conception locations will close at 1 p.m. for staff development. Portal & phone messages will be answered on Monday, August 22. Emergencies will be sent to the physician on call.

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.
