ADVANCED FERTILITY SERVICES
After we've assessed the cause of any barriers to getting pregnant, Dr. Wells will work with you to create a plan of action, utilizing the following services:
Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)
Frozen Embryo Transfer
Minimally Invasive Reproductive Surgery
In vitro fertilization (IVF) is the most successful assisted reproductive technology available-- and we're incredibly proud of our success rates.
With this treatment, your partner's sperm are combined with your egg in our embryology laboratory in hopes of achieving fertilization, resulting in an embryo. The embryo is then transferred into a woman’s uterus (womb) or is cryopreserved (frozen) for future use.

Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is a micromanipulation procedure where a single sperm is captured in a thin glass needle and safely injected directly into the egg.
This incredible procedure allows fertilization to be possible even with just one sperm.

During the IVF process, more embryos can develop than are used or transferred. In this case, there is the option to freeze (cryopreserve) any excess quality embryos for future IVF attempts.
Embryos can be frozen at the pronuclear stage (one cell), or at any stage after that up to and including the blastocyst stage (five to seven days after fertilization).
We utilize the latest technology in cryopreservation, called Vitrification. This ultra-rapid freezing technique minimizes any ice crystal formation and potential damage to frozen embryo(s). Research studies show better post-thaw survival rates and higher live birth rates using embryo(s) frozen with this technique.
In the case where your fertility challenges are anatomical, you'll be in good hands.
Dr. Wells is an incredibly talented physician, specializing in minimally invasive procedures—resulting in no or small incisions—which can be performed through an endoscope on an outpatient basis.
They're able to correct anatomical disorders of the uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries, to help restore reproductive function.
Minimally invasive surgery is often associated with less pain than traditional surgery and allows you to return home the same day.
