The Indian Society for Prenatal Diagnosis & Therapy (ISPAT) is multi-disciplinary society established in 1989 by liked minded doctors & scientists interested in the Prevention and Management of Birth Defects of genetic and non-genetic origin.
Founded by the top consultants of the country under the guidance of our Founder President Padmashree Dr. Rustom P Soonawala, we have spread to every corner of the country.
Our members are the top Obstetricians, Pediatricians, Fetal Medicine Specialists, Radiologists, Geneticists, Biochemists and Medical Scientists of the country.
We enjoy affiliation to the International Society for Prenatal Diagnosis (ISPD) and Affiliated to World Association of Perinatal Medicine initiated by our Past President Dr. Narendra Malhotra.
Having started 34 years back, today we are the oldest society for fetal medicine in India.
Genetics today has advanced by leaps & bounds. There is a huge amount of information we get during pregnancy; and every obstetrician is very keen to learn about the same.
We have been travelling across the length & breadth of the country addressing gynaecologists and other clinicians spreading knowledge & awareness of latest medical information.
ISPAT has partnered with other associations, medical
institutes, academic partners for conducting CME's in
various cities of the country on various topics in
Obstetrics, Perinatology, Neonatal care and Genetics. We
have had series on Fetal Growth Restriction,
Epigenetics, Newborn Screening, and several other
relevant topics. These have been well attended by top
Gynecologists & Paediatricians, and received tremendous
acclaim all over.
Many National & International Conferences have an ISPAT session.
We have conducted scores of workshops on Invasive Prenatal Diagnostic Techniques, Ultrasound (Fetal Scan) during pregnancy, Laboratory Techniques in Prenatal Testing, etc. batch sizes are optimum for grasping the method well.
We have initiated research projects on rare diseases that involve findings of novel mutations for several birth defects. As genetics is advancing at such a rapid pace, and newer findings are being made available frequently, we have initiated a DNA bank to safely store samples of affected proband; which could help future generations benefit
