Boston IVF and IVF New England have pioneered many of the technologies that now play a major role in the success of IVF throughout the country and the world. These same technologies ensure that our fertility patients in Providence receive the most innovative treatments and the best chance for successful outcomes.
Choosing The Providence Fertility Center means that you will gain access to an entire network of experts who are dedicated to your success. Our fertility laboratory, scientists and team of reproductive endocrinologists will be by your side every step of the way.
of the nation’s best reproductive endocrinologists, who will come together to review and assist in complex fertility cases.
The combined number of scientific directors, PhD’s, embryologists and laboratory technicians in the Boston IVF and IVF New England network, who will work together to optimize scientific techniques and explore emerging technologies.
The number of IRB clinical studies we are now conducting
For almost three decades, Boston IVF & IVF New England have conducted groundbreaking research that’s contributed to vast improvements in fertility treatment and care.
Our fertility network provides expanded access to more clinical trials and research initiatives, which often offer significant discounts on treatments and medications to patients.
Our current research is investigating better ways to:
• predict embryo viability
• select the ‘best’ sperm
• better diagnose PCOS and endometriosis
• analyze if/how celiac disease affects fertility
The age range of young women who generously donate their eggs via our Donor Egg Program and help make the dreams of becoming parents a reality for those struggling with infertility. Our program offers easy access to a diverse donor database, where patients can take advantage of more time efficient cycle starts and success rates that are comparable to fresh donor egg cycles.
The number of research papers, publications and chapters authored by our physicians and scientists.
Average Number of Eggs Transferred
The progression towards emphasizing single embryo transfers has led to a substantial decrease in multiple pregnancies, without any decrease in pregnancy rates.
One of the three gases (along with N2, O2) that our new and improved incubators use to grow embryos. These incubators are smaller and designed to maintain a more consistent culturing environment and optimum temperature.
Most importantly, they significantly improve pregnancy rates!
the combined number of eggs frozen at our labs in 2014 – compared with 2007 (125).
the percent increase of elective egg freezing cycles performed at our centers since 2007.
The percentage of frozen embryos that now survive the thaw process, via vitrification.
Embryo survival is better after vitrification (flash freezing) when compared to a more slow-freezing technique, because there are minimal ice crystal formations and decreased cellular degeneration to the embryo. Therefore, the vitrified embryo looks just like a fresh embryo. FET (frozen embryo transfer) success rates at each of our centers are essentially no different from fresh ET success rates.
Coming Soon to Providence
Also known as estradiol, this hormone is traditionally measured in the blood – but can now be accurately calculated in saliva.
Our fertility doctors and scientists have introduced a cutting-edge, needle-free test that will replace the necessity for daily blood work during a patient’s treatment cycle.
By replacing daily blood draws with a simple saliva (spit) test, we are eliminating one of the most unpleasant and stressful aspects of fertility treatment monitoring.
