SGF's new Fairfax, VA IVF center

We are committed to providing patients with the highest quality laboratory standards and continuous innovation to ensure the best outcomes.

Shady Grove Fertility (SGF)’s first IVF center in Fairfax, VA is now open and has earned full accreditation status by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). This accreditation symbolizes SGF’s commitment to excellence in laboratory protocols, quality controls, and incorporates the very latest technology to ensure patients receive the highest possible level of care.

“We are committed to providing patients with the highest quality laboratory standards and continuous innovation to ensure the best outcomes,” says Michael Tucker, Ph.D, SGF Scientific Director. “The technology in our laboratories is not the only thing that makes our success rates among the highest in the nation. Our extensively trained and talented team of specialists add the magic,” adds Tucker.

The new 19,000 square foot space in Fairfax is home to physician offices for patient consultations, a high-tech embryology laboratory that’s located adjacent to a spacious procedure center with an operating room, private recovery bays and embryo transfer rooms, as well as a dedicated andrology laboratory for semen analysis and sperm preparation. “With more than 50,000 babies born and counting, it’s remarkable to help make our patients’ dream of parenthood a reality. We are now able to fully serve our patients living in Virginia in a more convenient, fully accredited location,” says Eric D. Levens, M.D. of Shady Grove Fertility’s Fairfax, VA location.

SGF has redundant safeguards and quality control protocols in place at every step of the IVF process. With HEPA-filtered clean air ventilation systems and heated work stations that stimulate the in vivo (Latin for “within the living”) environment to anti-vibration tables that prevent harm to specimens should the table isolate from all disturbance and highly sophisticated inverted microscopes, SGF never compromises when it comes to maintaining the highest quality and safety standards.

The Virginia IVF Center is home to the fifth embryology lab operated by SGF, joining the largest freestanding IVF laboratory in the United States in Rockville, Maryland as well as Towson, MD; Atlanta, GA; and Chesterbrook, PA. Full-service SGF IVF Centers are coming soon to Tampa Bay, FL and Richmond, VA, in the coming months.

SGF is the largest fertility center in Virginia, and has been serving Northern Virginia with highly specialized and personalized fertility care for over 26 years. With locations now in Arlington, Dulles-Aldie, Fair Oaks, Fairfax, Haymarket, Leesburg, and Woodbridge, the practice is scheduled to open two new full-service offices this year in Fredericksburg and Richmond, VA.
