In Vitro Fertilization
We have a long history of a highly successful in vitro fertilization program. We pride ourselves on innovations in in vitro fertilization as well as providing highly ethical and effective clinical care. We are doing approximately 300 IVF retrievals per year. We also have active oocyte and embryo donation programs. Our program has always emphasized obtaining high clinical pregnancy rates while transferring as few embryos as possible to avoid high order multiple births.
Our Embryologist, Amy Sparks, PhD, is a recognized leader in the field of clinical embryology. Sparks has her High Complexity Lab Director Certification. Our lab is College of American Pathologists (CAP) certified and she serves as a CAP inspector. Her laboratory performs the full range of standard IVF procedures including ICSI, assisted hatching, blastocyst culture, embryo cryopreservation, and PGD. Through her laboratory, fellows would be exposed to embryology as it relates to in vitro fertilization and to proper laboratory quality control and techniques to maintain excellent results with IVF.
