Dr. Ron Wapner discusses Genetic Screening in Pregnancy

Recently, Dr. Ron Wapner from Columbia University gave a lecture to our staff about the recent developments in genetic screening during pregnancy.  He emphasized that one of the most important things we can make sure patients understand is that genetic screening is just that- a screening, not a guarantee of outcome or gene expression which can vary widely across individuals- genotype does not always equal identical phenotype.

This is an amazing lecture discussing some of the latest and ongoing research to try to give us the best genetic information possible, while keeping in mind that we are still more, in totality, than just our DNA.
