Fertility Center in San Diego

“Our beautiful baby was born on January 2015. I wanted to thank you for everything you had to do with bringing her into this world. We were energized by your approach and expertise and every time I had the opportunity to speak with you I was always so impressed by how much time you were willing to spend with me on the phone answering questions. You gave me the strength and hope I needed to keep moving forward. And I will never be able to thank you enough for that.” — TT & DO

Unique Approach — Japanese IVF

Japanese IVF is an approach to fertility treatment that focuses on prioritizing quality, safety, comfort, and success. Widely acclaimed as one of the best fertility centers in the United States, we have adopted Japanese protocols because they are structured around retrieving the highest quality eggs, which can them be used to create a high quality embryo — and returned to an ideal environment for conception, minimizing side-effects, risks, and complication.

Why is it important for us to use less fertility medications? Our success is defined by your safety, comfort, and ultimately helping you to have the healthiest pregnancy possible.

Key points of Japanese IVF: Low medication stimulation protocols, egg retrievals that avoid intravenous sedation or general anesthesia, using the smallest needle possible to avoid bleeding complications and lowering discomfort after egg retrieval, culturing embryos to blastocyst stage to reduce poor quality embryos, failed transfers, and miscarriages, possible Embryo freezing if fresh transfer is not ideal, vitrification (freezing technique created in Japan) to optimize embryo survival, minimal/no medication during embryo transfer, and single embryo transfers to minimize risk associated with multiple implantations.
