IVF & associated services
In vitro fertilization (IVF) is the most successful method of infertility treatment. IVF specialists combine the sperm and the egg (oocyte) for fertilization to occur, then the resulting embryos are transferred to the uterus to develop into a pregnancy.
Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is a laboratory procedure developed to help infertile couples undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF) due to male factor infertility.
PGS tests embryos in the IVF lab for genetic abnormalities before they are transferred back to the uterus (preimplantation). Preimplantation genetic testing is performed on embryos to assist detection of known genetic diseases or chromosomal abnormalities.
An embryo transfer occurs during IVF when a doctor places an embryo or embryos into a woman’s uterus. Learn about success rates & risks.
