Our Unique Services
In-Vitro Fertilization Manhattan
MRM patients take advantage of the most Advanced Reproductive Technology (ART) procedures available today to give our every patient the best chances for pregnancy to happen on the first run.
Our cutting-edge Laser equipment attached to high power microscope increases precision of IVF micromanipulation techniques. Laser practically eliminates embryo damage impossible to avoid with standard techniques. We routinely use Laser to benefit IVF processes such as ICSI, blastomere biopsy, pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD), and laser-assisted hatching.
MRM ART lab director, CARLO ACOSTA, has extensive and unique expertise with the complex microscopic techniques to produce highest quality embryos essential for successful implantation and pregnancy.
Art of Success and High Pregnancy Rates
Giving SART, national data collecting agency, latest 2010 publications, our hard work produces great results for our patients. MRM IVF pregnancy rates are being ones of the highest in New York area and over 50% per treatment for women under 35.
All IVF clinics today use comparable means as they treat patients with comparable, standard stimulation protocols using available prescriptive medications. Most of ART laboratory equipment and culture medias are obtained from the same sources. Surprisingly however, with all these similarities the IVF results are not uniformly the same.
Explanation for those differences is simple; IVF is an art form combination of skills and science. Master paintings are unique although all of them were created with tools available to other less talented artists.
MRM creates superior work! IVF is expensive, but the most effective treatment for infertility patients. Success rates are growing every year.
Donor Egg Program
MRM oocyte donation program utilizes eggs from directed and anonymous resources. Egg donor program is for women who need better quality eggs then their own oocytes.
Older women who want to get pregnant utilize donor eggs the most. Treatment to became pregnant is more appealing option then ADOPTION when patients are ready to start new family.
Today women over forty tend to be fit and healthy. Advances in medical science improved treatment of many medical ailments. Patients are happy to fully enjoy life while taking medications.
Many more women in forties and fifties are fit for motherhood. Are the forties ‘new thirties’? Perhaps not, but older mothers make a new trend in our society. Quoting MRM statistics, our oldest first time mother was 55 and with pleasure we report that she is very happy to enjoy her son childhood!
Many well-liked celebrities lead by example as they had her children later in life with facts to prove it: Jane Symour twins at 44, Nancy Grace twins at 48, Marcia Cross twins at 44, Geena Davis twins at 48, Holly Hunter at 47.
Overcoming Miscarriages; Adept Approach to Produce Results
Recurrent (repetitious) miscarriages and pregnancy loses at different stages of pregnancy, very difficult medical puzzles to understand and to treat, are on the increase.
Most of the obstetricians have no time and no experience to treat patients who loose every pregnancy they conceive. Obstetricians would order a routine evaluation, but when basic ‘miscarriage workup’ turns negative problem remains unsolved with encouraging advise ‘try again since everything is fine with you’.
Hardly ever any patient is referred with recommendations to be treated with ART.
Women, who lost two, three or more pregnancies , have rightfully difficulties to accept grim prognosis that NOTHING COULD BE DONE TO PROTECT her tiny baby from destruction early on in the womb. Patient becomes withdrawn depressed and surely convinced that she will never become a mother.
Fortunately recent advances in understanding maternal IMMUNE SYSTEM role in early pregnancy gave much needed in site into demystifying nature of the many unexplained miscarriage. New therapies emerged giving very good chances to reverse ‘bad luck’ needed to for successful pregnancy
Abnormal maternal immune responses may cause recurrent implantation failure producing chemical pregnancies and failed multiple IVF attempts. New concepts are emerging to explain what is happening in the pregnant uterus and new therapies are responsible for bringing success to difficult, early stages of fetal growth and development.
In patients with early pregnancy losses and miscarriages it is absolutely essential to implement therapy virtually at the START of pregnancy.
IVF and embryo transfer gives unique opportunity to synchronize time of starting medications that will protect early pregnancy and neutralize destructive, aberrant immune reactions at the time when embryo is small and defenseless.
Advances in oocyte freezing gave a chance, and frequently the only chance, for future fertility in women who were diagnosed with cancer and who must to undergo chemotherapy that certainly will damage ovary and eggs.
Oocyte freezing became the newest service for ART patients . Women who are not ready to start families enthusiastically welcomed new avenue to preserve declining youth and fertility. Many centers advertise egg-freezing services claiming uniform success in predicting frozen gametes (oocytes) future.
Long term experience with frozen sperm and frozen embryos should curb overwhelming optimism.
NOBODY today can guarantee that individual EGG BANKING is a SURE alternative to getting pregnant at the younger age regardless of all glossy promises.
Women without partners deciding on MOTHERHOOD
Growing generation of single career women are reaching their late 30s unmarried but still desperate to become mothers. Many are embarking on parenthood alone, never to look back. We are working with all sperm banks licensed in New York State and we assist if necessary with the specimen selection intrauterine inseminations.
Azoospermia (no sperm) is a condition where ejaculated contains no sperm.
In the past man with azoospermia could not have a biological child. TESA, PROCEDURE TO RECOVER LIVE SPERM FROM TESTES offers 50% pregnancy rates for men diagnosed with azoospermia. TESA is effectively used for men who earlier underwent vasectomy.
Sex selection and embryo biopsy for genetic indications (PGD)
Progesterone Therapy, Our Unique Model
The length of a human pregnancy is 40 weeks. In most pregnancies, labor starts between 37 weeks and 42 weeks after a woman’s last menstrual period. When it begins before 37 weeks, it is considered preterm.
Serious illness or death can occur because the baby is not yet ready for life on his or her own. Preterm birth accounts for most newborn deaths.
Fears regarding the risks of fertility treatment have grown after doctors warned that IVF babies faced a more premature births than those conceived naturally. In addition, multiple pregnancies is a risk factor for premature birth, however, there is an additional 23% increase in the chances of premature birth in IVF twins compared with natural twins.
In singletons there is about a two-fold increased risk of premature birth following IVF. Single babies born to women following fertility treatment are twice as likely to be premature and three times more likely to be very small, with a birth weight below 1500g.
Understanding that without any other risk factors IVF pregnancies are at risk for premature delivery, we recommend our patients to continue progesterone therapy passed first trimester as a preterm labor risk-decreasing measure.
Frequently female or male hormonal imbalance is responsible for difficulties to conceive. Blood test may be a key in diagnosis and that very important blood test should not be postponed.
