Orange County, CA (PRWEB) August 10, 2010
Fertility preservation by egg freezing is the latest frontier that has been overcome by the fertility experts at West Coast Fertility Centers (WCFC) in Orange County, California. The prospect of halting the Biologic Clock for women is now a reality by preserving their healthy, viable eggs during the best reproductive years. The effect of physiologic aging had long been the enemy of fertility due to the limited supply of eggs formed at the time a woman is born. As age advances, the decline in the number and quality of eggs, also known as oocytes, continues to accelerate with little or no warning.
To help women preserve their eggs when they are healthy and robust, the laboratories of West Coast Fertility Centers (WCFC) have refined the technique of shielding the eggs from the effects of freezing. A unique set of freezing fluids, known as the Landa Freezing Technology, was developed over the past ten years, giving women the option of harvesting and storing their eggs indefinitely.
David Diaz, MD, FACOG, a fertility expert with 22 years experience, will explain how to determine who is a candidate for egg freezing; how patients are selected and a brief overview of the egg freezing technique at WCFC. Dr. Diaz and the members of his team will lead the discussion with visual presentations and the opportunity to meet a patient who had a healthy baby after egg freezing. A private tour of the surgical suite and accredited laboratories at WCFC will also be given.
Aside from the educational seminar on Wednesday, September 1st, 2010 from 6-8 PM, Dr. Diaz will also host an informative webinar on Wednesday, August 25th, 2010 at 5 PM (PST). Please register for the webinar directly online.
Those who may benefit from egg freezing include: young, single women diagnosed with cancer that can preserve their eggs from chemotherapy and radiation; young women who wish to preserve their fertile eggs until they are ready to start their family; women undergoing IVF who prefer to freeze unfertilized eggs versus embryos for ethical reasons. The Frozen Egg Bank, Inc will also explain how certain women can still have a family by selecting frozen eggs from young healthy donors whose eggs are stored at the Frozen Egg Bank.
The Egg Freezing Program at WCFC has resulted in the births of 54 healthy babies, more than any program in the Western United States. Many additional pregnancies are also on-going.
