The new SART report reflects the many changes in how infertility medicine is practiced as advances like genetic screening & elective single embryo transfer are more routinely utilized.
Newport Beach, CA (PRWEB) April 29, 2016
The infertility specialists at HRC Fertility/Orange County (HRC/OC) -- Dr. Mickey S. Coffler, Dr. Jane L. Frederick, Dr. Sanaz Ghazal, and Dr. Daniel A. Potter -- are proud of the recent release of their 2014 in vitro fertilization success rates from the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART). In April, SART published the latest verified data for 375 U.S. member clinics. *Preliminary data shows HRC/OC achieved a live birth rate per patient of 83.3% for women under 35 using their own eggs in a non-frozen IVF cycle (n=126). National statistics were a 57% live birth rate per female patient with the same characteristics of being under 35 using their own eggs in a fresh IVF cycle.
HRC Fertility/Orange County also was pleased with the percentage of singleton births for its patients, which is another important outcome of successful infertility treatment. With a multiple pregnancy of twins or higher, there is a greater risk for both mother and babies. At the clinic, 64.3% of the live births per patient for women under 35 using their own eggs in a non-frozen IVF cycle were singletons; nationwide, 43% of women under the age of 35 using their own eggs in a fresh IVF cycle had a singleton birth. HRC/OC physicians also reduced the number of IVF cycles per patient to achieve a pregnancy, making treatment more cost-effective for patients.
This year’s SART report includes many significant changes to help infertility patients better understand their chances of success. “The new SART report reflects the many changes in how infertility medicine is practiced as advances like genetic screening and elective single embryo transfer are more routinely utilized,” Medical Director Dr. Potter explained. “We strive to provide the latest techniques appropriate for each patient so we can maximize their chances for success.”
All clinic physicians encourage patients to ask about the relevance of these reports for their diagnosis. Says Practice Director Dr. Frederick: “It’s important to track this information to give patients a realistic idea of HRC’s success rates resulting in live births so they are confident they have chosen the right fertility clinic. Our patients are our number one priority and we want to ensure the best results. This accomplishment solidifies our commitment to them.”
Please note: A comparison of clinic success rates may not be meaningful because patient medical characteristics, treatment approaches and entrance criteria for ART may vary from clinic to clinic. For more information, visit http://www.sart.org.
