Recurrent Pregnancy Loss
The Recurrent Pregnancy Loss Program at TRIO is a comprehensive program that focuses on all aspects of recurrent pregnancy loss. At TRIO, we work with patients who have a history of two or more consecutive pregnancy losses in the first trimester, or any pregnancy loss after 15 weeks gestation. Our program is unique because it offers a systematic approach to the evaluation and treatment of recurrent pregnancy loss, including a personalized management strategy for each patient or couple to optimize the probability of a successful pregnancy.
The RPL Team
Dr. Carl Laskin and Dr. Sony Sierra head up the RPL program. Both doctors are specialists in the treatment and management of recurrent pregnancy loss.
