Memphis, TN (PRWEB) August 27, 2013
Fertility Associates of Memphis recently marked a significant milestone: its 5,000th baby born from assisted reproductive technologies. The number highlights just how many couples struggle with infertility and the specialized treatments that can help.
In the United States, 15 percent of all couples will face fertility issues, and many will be diagnosed with a reproductive disorder. Thanks to significant advances in the diagnosis and treatment of infertility over the past decade, the vast majority of couples struggling with pregnancy will ultimately be successful.
The physicians at Fertility Associates of Memphis are among the most experienced reproductive endocrinology and infertility doctors in the field. Founding partner Dr. William Kutteh, who also holds a PhD, has been instrumental in ongoing research involving recurrent pregnancy loss and speaks on that and other related topics around the world as a renowned expert. Dr. Raymond Ke, the practice's other founding partner, is an expert in polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), assisted reproductive technologies, and reproductive endocrine disorders of all age groups.
"It has been an honor to help create families throughout the past 20 years," said Ke, who also serves as the practice's director of in vitro fertilization services. "We look forward to doing even more as we continue to grow and offer our patients the very best care and latest innovations in assisted reproductive technologies."
Last year, Fertility Associates of Memphis added its third physician, Dr. Paul Brezina from Johns Hopkins, who has helped expand the cutting-edge genetic testing applications available to patients through the Fertility Associates of Memphis lab. The practice also reported the region’s first live births from frozen egg in-vitro fertilization (IVF) cycles earlier this year and has enjoyed ongoing success helping cancer victims and other patients with this breakthrough in fertility preservation.
