Austin, Texas (PRWEB) January 29, 2013
Texas Fertility Center (TFC), the Texas pioneer in fertility care that has helped couples conceive and deliver over 12,000 babies, is proud to announce their expansion into San Antonio. TFC anticipates bringing affordable and effective IVF and infertility treatments to San Antonio couples trying to get pregnant, with doors opening to patients on February 1. Texas Fertility Center opened their first Central Austin location in 1981, followed by clinics in North Austin, Round Rock, and now San Antonio.
Dr. Summer L. James, board certified in obstetrics and gynecology, as well as reproductive endocrinology and infertility, will direct clinical care at Texas Fertility Center-San Antonio.
Dr. James brings to San Antonio a passion for resolving infertility and furthering research, particularly in the areas of ovarian dysfunction, polycystic ovarian syndrome and minimally invasive fertility surgery.
“I am honored to serve at the helm of the San Antonio fertility clinic that bears the Texas Fertility Center name,” says Dr. James. “Texas Fertility Center is nationally recognized for cutting-edge technology, award-winning research and state-of-the-art treatment for both female and male infertility. I am looking forward to writing the next chapter in the Texas Fertility Center story that already includes 12,000 happy endings.”
Comprehensive Infertility Diagnostic Service and Individualized Treatment Plans
Texas Fertility Center provides the most effective infertility treatments in advanced reproductive medicine, ranging from Clomid or gonadotropins with intrauterine insemination (IUI) to in-vitro fertilization (IVF), as well as the use of donor gametes (eggs or sperm). TFC patient advocates specialize in connecting patients with resources that make fertility medications, fertility treatment and IVF affordable.
“At TFC, we offer supportive, compassionate care to couples throughout fertility treatment,” adds Dr. James. “From the first infertility evaluation and progression through the most effective treatment plan, you will find that the Texas Fertility Center physicians and clinical care team really listen to your fertility goals. Individualized treatment plans reflect those goals, whether aggressive or conservative, for the best possible outcome.”
TFC’s new, state-of-the-art laboratory offers IVF, intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) and egg freezing.
The quality of the TFC fertility lab and the expertise of its embryologists has lead to nationally recognized IVF success rates. In addition, Texas Fertility Center andrologists (specialists in male infertility) perform semen analysis, sperm washing for IUI and facilitate the use of donor sperm.
