Amniocentesis Picture

Amniocentesis

Amniocentesis is a safe, proven technique that has been used for decades to help provide the best care possible for expecting mothers and their babies. Used for a variety of fetal diagnostic procedures, the test uses ultrasound guidance to ensure the safe removal of amniotic fluid.

Our physicians at Perinatal Associates of New Mexico are highly-trained and experienced in performing genetic amniocenteses. You can be sure that you’ll be in the hands of a skilled expert during your procedure.

As with all testing performed at PANM, you’ll also receive counseling about amniocentesis prior to the test to make sure that you’re comfortable with the process and fully understand the risks, benefits, and limitations involved.

 

Everyone at Perinatal Associates was extremely knowledgeable and friendly.  They walked us through each step and explained exactly what was happening and what to expect next.  My pregnancy required many visits and I always felt welcomed and in good hands when I was there.

I highly recommend them!
