- Fertility preservation:
- Egg freezing: Allows a woman to electively freeze her eggs at a younger age for use at a later date
- Prior to cancer treatment: When a man or woman is diagnosed with cancer, he or she can receive counseling on the options available to preserve either sperm or eggs prior to cancer treatment
- Prior to hormonal treatment: When a patient plans hormonal treatment such as testosterone, the patient may choose to undergo oocyte retrieval for egg or embryo freezing
- Elective: Couples who are not ready to build their families yet may choose to freeze embryos for later use
- Gestational carrier services: An individual or couple may be recommended to use a gestational carrier (also called a surrogate), a woman who gets pregnant via IVF using egg and sperm from the intended parents and/or donors.
- LGBTQ+ fertility services: Inclusive fertility services we offer include donor insemination, IVF and gestational carrier services.
- Intrauterine insemination: A procedure in which sperm is injected directly into the uterus at the time a woman ovulates. This process can use the sperm of the intended parent or that of a donor.
- In-vitro fertilization: This process of removing eggs, fertilizing them, and returning developed embryos into a woman's body to carry is a safe and highly effective option for couples having difficulty conceiving
- Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI): A single sperm is injected directly into an individual egg retrieved from the woman’s ovaries to achieve fertilization
- Embryo cryopreservation: Excess embryos are frozen for implantation at a later date
- Egg donation: Gives women/couples the opportunity to use donated eggs for their in vitro fertilization treatment
- Pre-implantation genetic testing for single-gene disorders (PGT-M): Testing performed to determine whether a genetic condition carried by a parent(s) has been transmitted to the egg or embryo
- Pre-implantation genetic testing for aneuploidy (PGT-A): For parents who have no known genetic abnormalities, embryos can be screened for chromosomal abnormalities (aneuploidy)
- Ovulation induction: Simple oral medications regulate or begin a woman's ovulation
- Reproductive surgery: Our team has extensive experience in a wide range of specialized surgical techniques, including minimally invasive and robotic surgery, that can help preserve and enhance fertility. These procedures, including laparoscopy and hysteroscopy, allow our surgeons to remove endometriosis, ovarian cysts, uterine fibroids, polyps and scar tissue, repair fallopian tubes, and perform exploratory procedures.
- Sperm banking: Preserves a man’s sperm for future fertilization in the event of potential fertility challenges, such as cancer, an upcoming deployment or a vasectomy
- Tubal sterilization reversal: Outpatient procedure reverses tubal ligation for women who wish to pursue additional childbearing
- Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS): Diagnosis and treatment for polycystic ovary syndrome, or PCOS, a common hormonal condition that can cause fertility problems
- Weight loss: Extra weight can be a significant problem in some patients as it is associated with lower fertility rates, especially with IVF, and high-risk pregnancies.
