FOETAL MEDICINE

At Fortis La Femme, our foremost aim is to ensure health and well-being of your new-born. Our specialised department for foetal medicine is instrumental in helping us achieve our goal by performing all tests and screenings necessary for monitoring the condition of a developing foetus. The Department of Genetics & Foetal Medicine at Fortis La Femme is fully equipped with imaging techniques to accurately diagnose babies with birth defects or any common or rare genetic disorders.

Apart from evaluating the development of a foetus and checking for possible genetic disorders, the centre also provides personal counselling for prospective parents. Our world-class experts will clearly evaluate your condition and guide you through the route and time of delivery in case any complications are detected.

Fortis La Femme is one of the few centres in India where all forms of genetic counselling and prenatal diagnosis is provided under one-roof.

Key tests done at the department include:

  • Amniocentesis: Also referred to as amniotic fluid test or AFT, Amniocentesis is a medical procedure used in prenatal diagnosis of chromosomal abnormalities and foetal infections. Amniocentesis is performed to look for certain types of birth defects, such as Down syndrome and can also detect certain neural tube defects such as spina bifida and anencephaly.
  • CVS: Chorionic villus sampling (CVS) is a prenatal test that diagnoses chromosomal abnormalities such as Down syndrome, as well as a host of other genetic disorders.
  • Cordocentesis: Percutaneous umbilical cord blood sampling (PUBS), also called cordocentesis, fetal blood sampling, or umbilical vein sampling is a diagnostic genetic test that examines blood from the foetal umbilical cord to detect foetal abnormalities.
