I think the consensus seems to be Prof Nicolaides at the Fetal Medicine Centre - private but he also does NHS work I think at King's.

We were considering CVS and would have gone to him if we'd gone for it, I believe he has an excellent reputation and record.

Might also be worth posting on the Antenatal Tests board for advice as lots have had CVS.

I can recommend Prof Nicolaides - I had laser ablation surgery carried out by him a couple of weeks ago at Kings for twin to twin transfusion syndrome - NHS, he was fantastic. If you are in the greater London area your local hospital should be able to recommend you to the fetal medicine centre there. I am not sure if he personally carries out all the cvs.

Best of luck x

Nicolaides @ fmc. Iirc he invented cvs, miscarriage rate 0%.

Prof Nicolaides, as has been said. Very odd bedside manner but he's great!

Just read the rest of the thread - he does do all the CVS himself (or he did in 2009 when he did mine). Another obstetrician will do scan/bloods and prepare you and then he bursts into the room like a caped crusader, carries out the procedure and crashes out again. He was with us for no more than a couple of minutes!
