With the IVF-PGD option, success rates approach 100%.
Couples in our program can feel comfortable that once treatment begins, they do have a nearly 100% excellent chance of achieving the desired outcome when pregnancy occurs.

While traditional sperm-screening techniques have a success rates of 60-70%, only PGD offers virtually 100% accuracy.
The selection of gender has been a quest of couples for as far back as recorded history allows.
The embryos resulting from this specialized fertilization process are then screened by our genetics team to determine both their gender and that selected chromosome pairs have resulted in an expected normal genetic pairing outcome (this process is called "aneuploidy" screening).
This gender determination process at the very early development level as made famous by our Center, has resulted in the ability to provide gender selection results for the chosen gender far in excess of 99.9%.
After separating his sperm for the desired gender, we would be left with a sperm count of at best, 15-16 million.
This would not be enough to allow for a reasonable chance of the couple conceiving with simple sperm selection and insemination.
Advised of the situation concerning their sperm sex ratio, the couple wisely elected to proceed with the IVF-PGD option.
They were rewarded with a twin pregnancy that resulted in the birth of two healthy, male infants.
New DNA microarray technology also provides us the option of screening embryos for a full (46 chromosome) genetic count.
