Request for the most experienced doctor
As a patient, it is your privilege to ask for the best doctor in the team. PRC doctors are extensively trained and experienced in infertility treatment and IVF. They have been instrumental in advancing the understanding and treatment of fertility and In Vitro Fertilization (IVF).
Discuss in advance about the number of embryos being transferred
Till very recently, doctors would transfer more than embryo to ensure that at least one would implant. But with modern technology, this may no longer be necessary. Preimplantation genetic diagnosis during your IVF fertility treatment procedure at Pacific Reproductive Center, LA ensures that the embryo being transferred is healthy and free from most inherited disorders. A healthy embryo has a greater chance of implanting, reaching full term and being born as a healthy baby.
