AGOG Recommends Expanded Genetic Screening

In the March issue of Obstetrics & Gynecology there are two committe opinions that recommend expanded carrier screening for recessive genetic disorders.  This is due to the lower costs of expanded testing in our current age of “Genomic Medicine.”  Pre-conception genetic screening gives future parents valuable information as there are currently commonly employed technologies that can prevent the birth of an affected child.  Couples have the very viable option of Pre-implantation Genetic Disease (PGD) screening of embryos through “in vitro” fertilization procedures.  The committe opinions are well written and I plan to use them as part of my informed consent process.
