Advanced IVF Technology Ensures Better Outcomes

The field of IVF has changed substantially since Ohio’s first IVF birth in 1983. The early risks of IVF have been virtually eliminated to ensure safe, positive outcomes for both mother and baby.

Having twins or triplets used to be a common occurrence with IVF. However, improved technology and clinical practice have greatly reduced the risk of multiple births via IVF. Now for many women, the transfer of just one embryo can result in a healthy, successful pregnancy.

Couples may also seek IVF because they are concerned about passing a disease they carry to their child. UH Fertility Center’s sophisticated technology enables physicians to prevent this by examining the couple’s embryos and implanting only those that are healthy.

A Comforting, Reassuring Experience

Our team strives to minimize the stress inherent in the IVF experience. Our comfortable center offers a relaxing environment and is located in the suburbs to provide easy highway access. In addition, convenient hours help accommodate patients’ busy schedules and satellite monitoring partnerships with community obstetricians/gynecologists cut down travel time for more remote patients.

Our team has a great deal of compassion for each individual patient, but when the stress of IVF becomes hard to manage, we have dedicated clinical psychologists with special expertise in reproductive health standing by to assist. This unique feature enables patients to keep their care on track in a seamless, integrated fashion. We also offer on-site acupuncture for patients who are interested in incorporating complementary medicine into their fertility treatments.
