"Exceptionally high IVF success rates means we’ve helped more patients overcome their struggle with infertility.”
Lakewood, New Jersey (PRWEB) June 07, 2016
According to the latest annual data just released by the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART), the primary outcome per intended retrieval for women under age 35 using their own eggs to complete IVF treatment cycles at Morgan Fertility and Reproductive Medicine (formerly Shore Institute for Reproductive Medicine) in 2014 had a live birth rate of 60%, 18% above the national average of 42.6%.
Since 1992 reproductive endocrinologists have been required to report IVF delivery rates to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and SART. The data is analyzed then released to the public 18 months later in order to provide patients with a comprehensive overview of IVF treatment and illustrate individual fertility centers’ success in the field.
“We’re very excited to share the latest IVF success rates with the public. Behind every statistic is a person or couple struggling for parenthood”, states Dr. Allen Morgan. "Exceptionally high IVF success rates means we’ve helped more patients overcome their struggle with infertility.”
SART’s new yearly report structure now includes genetic testing, egg and embryo cryopreservation and elective single embryo transfer (eSET). These procedures have improved live birth rates over the past decade and drastically reduced the occurrence of high-order multiple gestations.
“In recent decades we’ve been able to help more patients achieve success – the birth of a healthy child – faster than ever before, with less chances at twins and multiples," says Dr. Morgan. “The future is bright in our field. And, we’re proud to lead the way.”
Dr Morgan advises potential patients to also consider proximity to home or work, reputation for individualized care and ample financial assistance options when choosing a reproductive endocrinologist since the annual SART report numbers reflect varied patient selection criteria, treatment approaches, and cycle reporting practices that may inflate or lower pregnancy rates.
