"Treating Infertility is Our Passion and Our Business"

ZDL, Inc.Sex selection, also known as gender selection, has attracted great interest and controversy over the years. Gender selection has been associated with a number of ethical, moral, social and legal issues.

Sex selection may be performed for medical reasons to avoid sex-linked diseases such as hemophilia and Duchenne’s muscular dystrophy, and is acceptable in many countries such as the United Kingdom, USA and Australia.

However, gender selection for family balancing purposes is a very controversial issue. Should a couple be free to choose the sex of their child? For some the answer is yes because it is a fundamental right, while for others it is a threat to society.

At our centers, we are totally committed in assisting those couples that wish to have the child of the gender of their choice. We believe that it is a fundamental right and no one should take it away from them. It is because of our strong belief in those basic principles and our total dedication in the field of reproductive medicine that we commit our know-how and years of expertise in assisting you, the patient and the parent to be. We employ methodologies such as sperm selection or pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD), in assisting couples that wish to predetermine or choose the sex of their child.  You may view the specifics regarding those methods or options below:
