CVS Picture

CVS

Chorionic villus sampling (CVS) is a prenatal diagnostic procedure that may be performed to diagnose genetic or chromosomal disorders. A safe and reliable technique, CVS is generally performed between weeks 10 and 13 of your pregnancy.

When CVS testing is called for, our expert medical team takes a small sample of tissue from the placenta by transcervical or transabdominal methods under ultrasound guidance.

 

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!
