Why Choose VCRM? Our IVF Success Rates!
“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit”, as Aristotle wrote many centuries ago. At VCRM, we take Aristotle’s message to heart. We offer excellence in a small, boutique setting. The result is that you are in the best of hands. You are treated with respect and sensitivity, while being provided the benefits of the latest technological advances. Each time, you will see the same doctor and the same nurses. This is how excellence is achieved as we have done repeatedly by having one of the highest success rates in the US. VCRM is truly a place where everyone knows your name and, even more importantly, your medical case.
Many of our patients have failed at other clinics, and many conceive when they switch to VCRM. Our comprehensive approach, including the latest technologies, gives us an distinct edge over other programs. We also specialize in treating poor responders (Dr Sharara has published extensively on diminished ovarian reserve and poor responders), and have devised ways that may benefit some of these patients. VCRM is the only center in the area to offer blastocyst cycles exclusively (since March 2013). We also conduct clinical research trials that will hopefully improve outcomes for assisted reproduction, and have implemented a successful PGD program. VCRM was a pioneer in pushing elective single embryo transfers (eSET) as early as 2004, and currently > 50% of our patients < 38 years old choose eSET.
Dr Sharara, a leader in his field, will perform all your examinations and all the procedures, including each ultrasound monitoring, as well as the egg retrieval and the embryo transfer (compared to other clinics where the nurses or technician performs the ultrasounds and whichever doctor is on duty performs your egg retrieval and/or the embryo transfer procedure). It is not just your comfort level that benefits. This continuity of care contributes to the high success rate of our clinic.
VCRM is the Fertility Center that couples turn to after failing elsewhere. Indeed, over 30% of our patients have failed to get results at larger clinics. Many are told to pursue donor eggs, yet we have helped many couples have their own biologic children. Many competing clinics tell their patients when they ask them about VCRM’s success rates that we “cherry pick”. We only wish that was the case! If we do “cherry pick” our pregnancy rates would be even higher than what they are now! We encourage you to check the success rates of other clinics (along with how many embryos they transfer) to know how much better VCRM really is.
Finally, at VCRM, we not only offer all the above-quality care in a caring, hands-on setting at competitive prices- you have the highest likelihood of taking home a healthy baby after your first cycle. And that, of course, is what this is all about!
VCRM IVF Results
We continue to decrease the number of transferred embryos (In 2013, over 50% of women < 38 received a single embryo) with minimal, if any, impact on our success rates while avoiding the complications associated with twin pregnancies.
