IVF Florida Gets National Notice for Egg Freezing
IVF Florida Reproductive Associates is now one of 40 programs nationwide and the only program in Florida to receive the Seal of Quality Assurance for Oocyte Cryopreservation and Warming from Donor Egg Bank USA, the largest frozen egg bank in North America. To receive this recognition, practices have to pass a rigorous set of requirements and show exceptional results.
"The Seal of Quality Assurance is about attaining excellence in egg vitrification and warming,” said Heidi Hayes, Executive VP of Donor Egg Bank USA. “We are proud to send frozen donor eggs to IVF Florida given their mastery of both highly technical techniques, which should give not only patients using donor eggs confidence but also women who are choosing elective egg freezing.”
IVF Florida Reproductive Associates has partnered with Donor Egg Bank USA to provide frozen donor eggs as a treatment option for women who are unable to conceive using their own eggs. Donor eggs provide the highest pregnancy rates of any fertility treatment. After a frozen donor egg is fertilized with sperm, the resulting embryo is transferred to the patient’s uterus.
The Seal of Quality Assurance for Oocyte Cryopreservation and Warming showcases IVF Florida Reproductive Associates as achieving a 50% or higher clinical pregnancy rate over a minimum of five cycles as reported in Donor Egg Bank USA’s database, or an overall blastocyst per fertilized egg rate of 50% or higher, independent of clinical rate.
“We are thrilled to be recognized for our expertise in oocyte cryopreservation and warming,” said Dr. Hoffman of IVF Florida Reproductive Associates. “Our mission is to help people become parents, and frozen donor eggs are an important piece of the fertility treatment puzzle.”
Much data has shown that vitrified and warmed donor oocytes are more fragile and difficult to master than their fresh contemporaries. To consistently achieve excellent results with frozen donor oocytes proves that IVF Florida Reproductive Associates can be counted among the few in the field who have attained mastery.
