As every year, Dr. Robert Anderson and his embryology lab team provides data based on the outcomes of all ART cycles performed at his clinic. The latest data shows how improved the technology and Dr. Anderson's laboratory has become over the years.
Dr. Anderson's ART success rates (http://www.socalfertility.com/ivf-success-rate.html) are among the highest in the U.S. He comments, "We are very proud of our pregnancy success rates, especially since we take on couples with the most challenging situations." At SCCRM, the most difficult cases are treated and, most importantly, are given the best chance of getting pregnant with their own eggs. Dr. Anderson was able to raise his initial pregnancy rate per transfer for women under the age of 35 to 69%, for women between 35 and 37 to 46%, for women between 38 and 40 to 36%, and for women older than 40 to 15%.
A significant change in Dr. Anderson's success rates has been observed since the arrival of the new Laboratory Director, Dr. Michael Schiewe, who implemented new innovations in the embryology lab in terms of handling techniques and equipment upgrades. Thanks to Dr. Schiewe, state-of-the-art incubators and a series of other quality control measurements in the embryology lab are contributing factors to the increasing IVF success of Dr. Anderson's patients.
Dr. Anderson's above-average success rates are also the result of a series of patient considerations. Since each couple's case is different, Dr. Anderson has many different IVF protocols, of which one that best suits the needs of the couple and ultimately increases the chance of success is chosen. In addition, a close look at the ovaries before the start of medication determines if that month has the potential to result in a successful IVF cycle. Also, the proper placement of embryos via Transvaginal ultrasound guided embryo transfer (a technique pioneered by Dr. Anderson) has made a significant difference in success rates. "We believe that many IVF failures may be the result of improper placement of embryos at the time of transfer," states Dr. Anderson, "ultrasound guided embryo transfer should be standard in a state-of-the-art fertility clinic today."
Dr. Anderson's success rates are of high interest to couples seeking fertility treatment. However, he points out that patients should choose SCCRM not only for his statistics. His experience and expertise, his dedicated and compassionate staff, combined with state-of-the-art facilities and techniques make his fertility center the ideal environment for couples who would like to realize the ultimate dream of having children.
