Genetic Testing and Counseling: Trust Nevada’s Leading Team of Experienced, Compassionate Experts
Every pregnancy comes with risks for genetic abnormality, but a family history of genetic disease and/or advanced maternal age increases your risk. If you have these or other risk factors, your obstetrician may recommend that you see a maternal-fetal medicine specialist (perinatologist) for evaluation and advanced tests… even before you become pregnant.
Unsurpassed genetic testing and screening for genetic abnormalities.
At the High Risk Pregnancy Center, our specialists are at the forefront of prenatal diagnosis, providing the most advanced tests available.
