About Dr. Pritti K Priya

Dr. Pritti K Priya holds diverse experience in Prenatal Genetics and Reproductive Genetics. Dr. Pritti K Priya obtained her medical degree from SCB Medical College, Cuttack, and completed her Diploma in Obstetrics and Gynecology from Kolkata Medical College. She completed her MD in Pathology from B J Medical College, Ahmedabad, and obtained a Certificate Course in Human Genetics from the Institute of Human Genetics, Ahmedabad. She also received her Advanced Molecular Cytogenetics Diploma from the University of Paris. Additionally, Prince of Wales Hospital and CUHK-Baylor College of Medicine in Hong Kong’s Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology awarded Dr. Pritti K. Priya a Master of Science in Medical Genetics degree.

Currently, Ahmedabad’s HL Trivedi Institute of Kidney Disease and Research Centre’s Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology’s Cytogenetics & Molecular Laboratory (prenatal diagnostics) is under the direction of Dr. Pritti K. Priya where she is responsible for guiding all cytogenetics and molecular procedures. Her responsibilities include performing USG-guided interventional procedures and providing clinical genetic services including prenatal diagnostic service, prenatal genetic consultation for women with fatal anomalies, genetic testing, and counseling for families with genetic diseases.

For the purpose of keeping herself and her colleagues up to date on the complexities of cytogenetics, Dr. Pritti has authored multiple peer-reviewed publications and is actively engaged in research projects. Her current research interests include exploring the cause of structural fetal defect through exome sequencing and chromosomal microarray and identifying the cause of Nonimmune hydrops fetalis (NIHF), mainly the genetic aspect of it through molecular genetic testing. Based on her research and experience in antenatal sonography she is better able to correlate abnormal sonographic findings and their genetic causation which further enables her to recommend appropriate genetic testing in fetuses. She has completed two projects effectively relating to common mutations causing beta-thalassemia in our local population and the prevalence of Yq microdeletion in males with Non-obstructive azoospermia.

Dr. Pritti K. Priya appreciates the difficulties of study that call for imagination and tenacity and is dedicated to unraveling the mysteries of genetic diseases; investigating couples with reproductive issues and helping the parents to know the cause of the defect or sudden demise of their unborn child.
