Mr Mark Sedler MRCOG – Consultant Gynaecologist

Mark Sedler MRCOG Consultant Gynaecologist Mark is the lead Clinician on our PGS programme in Manchester. Mark has extensive experience in IVF. As a clinical research fellow, Mark underwent his specialist interest training in subfertility, reproductive medicine and IVF. Mark has specialist interests in Genetic Screening, ovarian stimulation, ultrasonography and laparoscopic surgery.

Since working at CARE Manchester, Dr Sedler has developed an interest in both Preimplantation genetic diagnosis and screening techniques. Working alongside a team involving highly experienced scientists, embryologists, fertility nursing staff and CARE's ever dedicated administration department, Dr Sedler says:

"We have a unique opportunity to take the next step forward in the evolution of fertility treatment with our new IVF screening programme of Array CGH. This will hopefully improve the ongoing clinical pregnancy rates per treatment cycle and just as importantly, decrease the pregnancy loss rates which of course is a devastating event for any couple"
