How to find the right IVF practice
Posted July 9, 2013
When a doctor recommends in vitro fertilization (IVF) or infertility treatment, patients have many questions. Where to go for treatment? What physician can be trusted to make the dream of becoming pregnant and having a healthy baby a reality? Will this treatment actually work?
The Raleigh area offers a number of options for IVF treatment, but to find the practice where physicians will be partners in the most effective treatment while providing compassionate care, be sure to ask these four essential questions.
What Kind of Experience Do The Physicians Have? It's one thing to specialize in OB/GYN, but it's another to be recognized for one's expertise. At Carolina Conceptions, for example, the entire team of physicians is fellowship trained and is double board certified in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility. That means they have studied, researched and become leaders in their field. For Carolina Conceptions' patients, that translates to a team of physicians who are not just knowledgeable, but are well versed in cutting edge technology and techniques to increase the chances of conception.
What is the Quality of Treatment? Infertility presents challenges, but the treatment process can also present challenges, both physical and emotional. The right practice recognizes that. At Carolina Conceptions, from the moment a patient calls for an appointment until "graduation" and beyond, she or he will receive compassionate and thoughtful care from every corner of the practice.
What Types of Infertility Treatment Are Offered? Infertility can be caused by a variety of factors and treatments must be tailored to individual patients. With more than 60 combined years of experience diagnosing infertility, the team at Carolina Conceptions is skilled at determining the best treatment approach for each person. Services include in vitro fertilization, intrauterine inseminations (IUI), ovulation induction, egg donation/egg recipiency, surrogacy, reproductive surgery and semen analysis, along with additional services designed to help patients grow their families.
What is the Success Rate? A physician's experience, how patients are treated and the treatment choices are all important, but none of it seems to matter if the actual treatment is not successful. While absolute success cannot be guaranteed, Carolina Conceptions' pregnancy success rates, detailed by the Society of Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART.org), exceed both the national and local average, indicating that the practice's experience and technique provide an increased chance of conception. With over 3000 pregnancies in 6 years, Carolina Conceptions must be doing a lot of things right.
