Victor Center Jewish Genetic Disease Screening
posted by: stonejos
The Victor Centers provide full service genetic counseling and screening for all individuals and couples interested in getting screened for Jewish genetic diseases.
Genetic screening is a process in which, through a simple blood test, a person's genes are examined for changes, called mutations, in specific genes. A person who is found to carry a mutation in one or more Ashkenazi Jewish genetic disease genes is a healthy individual and is not at risk to develop the disease. Genetic screening is used to determine whether an individual or couple is at increased risk to have a baby with a hereditary disorder by passing on a gene mutation to their offspring. It is strongly recommended that genetic screening be performed prior to pregnancy to afford the couple the most reproductive options.
