IUI is the process by which sperm that is prepared in the laboratory is transferred directly into the uterine cavity using a special catheter.


In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a type of assisted reproductive technology (ART) that is used to treat infertility.

Cryopreservation (Freezing)

Freezing services: Egg Freezing, Sperm Freezing, Embryo Freezing, Ovarian Freezing and Testicular Freezing.

Assisted Hatching

Assisted hatching (AH) is a laboratory procedure that breaks the this shell using a laser to help with implantation. Ah is usually done on the third or fifth day of laboratory growth and shortly prior to uterine transfer.

Blastocyst Transfer

The advantage of transferring a blastocyst embryo is that studies have shown that the implantation rate is higher with these embryos. Additionally, at this stage fewer embryos need to be transferred to achieve a pregnancy.

Surgical Sperm Retrieval (SSR)

This is a method that is used to surgically collect sperm from men who do not have sperm in their semen.

Pre-Implantation Genetic Testing

Preimplantation genetic testing (PGT) is a procedure performed in the laboratory during an IVF cycle to detect abnormalities in the chromosomes of the embryo or to test the embryo for a specific known genetic disorder before it is implanted.

Egg Donation

There are many causes of female infertility that can affect the chance of pregnancy when her own eggs are used.


Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is a method of insemination developed in the early 1990’s that provided a solution and treatment for couples with severe male factor infertility.
