Announcing Our New IVF Program with Embryo Screening
Fertility Centers of New England is proud to announce the most cost-effective embryo screening program available called IVF Select.
“Our expanded collaboration with Good Start Genetics of Cambridge, MA allows us to pass along cost-effective savings to our patients requesting embryo screening for normal chromosomes,” said Joseph A. Hill, MD, president, Fertility Centers of New England.
“The technique involves next generation sequencing,” said Danielle Vitiello, PhD, MD, Medical Director, Fertility Centers of New England, “enabling only one embryo with normal chromosomes to be transferred resulting in pregnancy rates as high as 80%,” she continued, “even in women over age 40 as long as they have a normal embryo to transfer.”
