NEW IVF TECHNOLOGY

Posted by Dr. Zhang

MITOCHONDRIAL DNA REPLACEMENT AND NUCLEAR TRANSFER

Good Evening.  Its my favorite time, Dr. Zhang’s Blog.  Today I would like to take the opportunity to talk about mitochondria and mitochondrial DNA, nuclear transfer and treating patients with a genetic disease for In Vitro Fertilization.  It sounds like a lot of topics but really, everything is revolving around Mitochondria. 

The reason I chose this topic is because today in February 2016, the National Academy of Science has made a statement that they are beginning to discuss techniques, clinical application, and ethics about mitochondrial replacement therapies.

New Hope in The New York Times

Posted by NHFC

As the title of a recent NY Times article suggests, Hope springs eternal at New Hope Fertility Center. The piece, which is a look into one person's experience at NHFC talks as much about our center as it does about the personal experience of going through IVF, generally - and we would like to think, about the hope that the best of today's care and technology can provide.
We understand that there are many factors that impact your ability to get pregnant. That’s why we designed our clinic and treatments to help optimize your fertility in every way. From our hours—we are open 7 days a week—to the spa like environment we strive to create, we do everything that we can in partnership with you to help you have a healthy baby -- even going as far as to customize treatments to each individual with our trademarked Mini-IVF™ protocols.

Our trademarked Mini-IVF™ protocol, like our Natural Cycle IVF, is a holistic approach to fertility care. Only 3-5 high quality eggs are ideal for developing a healthy baby. When more aggressive IVF drug treatments are used (like with conventional IVF), although more eggs are produced, those beyond 3-5 are typically not viable and are either discarded prior to implantation or are prone to failing in a later natural miscarriage.

Mini-IVF™ minimizes the amount of chemicals and drugs used in fertility treatment, may increase the chances of pregnancy, and may even provide surplus embryos to freeze for a later cycle.

Mini-IVF™ may be the right fit for you if you are looking to reduce health risks and discomfort caused by ovarian hyper-stimulation (OHSS), to eliminate the pain of daily drug injections (which can be 20-60 per cycle), to reduce the high cost of drugs in conventional IVF protocols to avoid the wait time of two to three months between cycles, and to minimize the potential risk of ovarian and endometrial cancer from prolonged use of high-dose IVF drugs.

EmbryoScope Technology at New Hope Fertility

Posted by NHFC



New Hope Fertility Center is happy to announce that we are currently using EmbryoScopes which have been described as a new hope for couples who want to conceive.

EmbryoScopes, approved by the FDA in 2011, are incubators used for monitoring developing embryos.

This technology is only currently available in about 15 reproduction centers around the country according to NBC news.

So why is this cutting edge technology important?

Unlike conventional monitoring methods which only capture single static observations, Embryoscopes come with a built-in camera that can be set to capture images at set intervals.

The images can be strung together to create a time-lapse video, documenting the development of the embryo over time, until it is ready for transfer (usually at the blastocyst stage).

This technology is helpful in making the best embryo selection decisions and some believe it will also contribute to higher IVF treatment success rates.

At New Hope, we are committed to your success.

Weathering the Storm

Posted by NHFC

There is nothing like a storm of a century to bring a city together. While we know that there are still many without power or heat (and in some cases without homes) and that the effects of Hurricane Sandy are still being felt in a variety of ways throughout the northeast, we are happy to see the gradual recovery as it happens across many realms. We are also always happy to hear news of people and places that have found ways to weather the storm, and in many instances, to weather it together.

Some of you may have seen this recent article in the Huffington Post about safe embryos, and frozen eggs and sperm from the NYU Fertility Center, who was able to do 11 egg retrievals already in our Columbus Circle facilities. We feel incredibly lucky to have been so unaffected by the storm and that we were able to keep our Columbus Circle doors open not just to our patients, but for other clinics and their patients.

We hope for a speedy recovery for the rest of the city -- perhaps we can all soon be back to operating "business as usual".
