The physicians at RMAPA have outstanding experience with the full range of fertility procedures that represent important options for our patients.
IVF – the most commonly used assisted reproductive technology, a woman’s eggs are combined with a man’s sperm to achieve fertilization in the laboratory. The embryo is then transferred into the woman’s uterus where it will hopefully implant to achieve a pregnancy.
Ovulation induction – where commonly used fertility drugs are administered to stimulate a woman’s ovaries to produce eggs.
Intrauterine insemination (IUI or artificial insemination) – where sperm are processed then transferred directly into the woman’s uterus to improve the chances of fertilization.
Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) – a method of inseminating an egg during IVF, where a single sperm is injected directly into the cytoplasm of the egg for fertilization.
Blastocyst transfer – a technique used during IVF in which embryos are allowed to develop for additional time in the laboratory before being transferred into the uterus.
Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) or Comprehensive Chromosomal Screening (CCS) – is procedure completed during an IVF cycle where an embryo is biopsied in an attempt to identify specific genetic characteristics that can affect the chances of having a healthy baby. PGD can be helpful for couples with certain genetic disorders, a history of multiple miscarriages, or previous treatment failures.
Egg donation – for women who are unable to achieve a pregnancy using their own eggs, we are able to create an embryo using eggs provided by an anonymous donor. The embryo can then be implanted into the woman or a gestational carrier to achieve a pregnancy.
Sperm donation – where sperm from a donor is used to fertilize a woman’s egg.
Treatment involving gestational carriers – where a woman is available to carry a pregnancy to term for a couple.
Laparoscopy – an outpatient surgical procedure where a fiber optic camera is placed via the umbilicus (navel) to provide a direct visualization of the peritoneal cavity, ovaries, outside of the tubes and uterus. The procedure can often identify adhesions (scar tissue) or endometriosis, conditions that may cause infertility.
For every patient at RMAPA, treatment begins with a comprehensive evaluation conducted by our medical team. During your first appointment, you will have an opportunity to discuss your medical history and your treatment plan with one of our providers. In addition, each patient is assigned their own nurse who is their main point of contact for medical questions and support. Although we work as a team to provide patient care, we always try to make our patients feel that they are receiving personalized service.
