Infertility Treatment Services
Reproductive Care Center (RCC) offers the full spectrum of diagnostic and infertility treatment techniques. Our fertility specialists have completed extensive, advanced training, and held positions at major medical schools in the field of reproductive endocrinology and infertility. They offer unmatched training and experience in infertility treatment techniques such as in vitro fertilization, intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) and preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD).
Medications and IUI
Many patients achieve pregnancy without the need for advanced infertility treatments, such as IVF. Intrauterine insemination (IUI) employing oral ovulation enhancing agents, such as Clomid®, or FSH injections (either alone or in conjunction with oral agents if necessary) is often the “treatment of first choice” Sometimes the correct medication is all that is needed to establish a pregnancy.
IVF and Associated Infertility Treatments
Decades of research and clinical application have changed IVF from a one size-fits-all infertility treatment to a menu of assisted reproductive technologies (ART). It is now possible to tailor the advanced infertility treatment to the particular needs of the couple, in order to maximize success.
Assisted reproductive technologies now encompasses IVF, (ICSI) intracytoplasmic sperm injection, testicular sperm aspiration (TESE), embryo freezing, the use of donor eggs at our Utah donor egg program, and laboratory micromanipulation procedures used in conjunction with IVF. We also have an active "Donor Embryo" program for couples who cannot use their own embryos. We also offer egg freezing for women wishing to preserve their fertility as they age.
We offer gender selection using PGD in order to help our patients have healthy, balanced families. Some genetic diseases, such as hemophilia, are "sex linked" meaning they can only occur in a child of a particular gender. Using PGD for gender selection, we can select only the unaffected embryos to transfer into the uterus.
We also provide sensitive, compassionate care to couples who have experienced the pain and disappointment of recurrent miscarriage. We can conduct a complete evaluation aimed at discovering the root cause of miscarriage and employ the latest techniques, such as PGD, to help ensure a healthy pregnancy. If indicated, we may conduct this evaluation in conjunction with a maternal fetal medicine specialist.
Surgical Infertility Treatment Options
Oftentimes, surgery is needed to correct/treat diseases such as endometriosis or uterine abnormalities. Our fertility specialists have extensive training in advanced laparoscopic surgical techniques. Most surgical procedures can be completed as an outpatient through the laparoscope, greatly reducing pain and recovery time.
Tubal Reversal Surgery Options
We also provide in depth consultation about tubal reversal options. Tubal reversal surgery can produce good success rates in many patients and IVF is a better option in others. A complete evaluation is done to provide the best infertility treatment recommendations.
