In vitro fertilization is the most common procedural treatment used by the experts at Midwest Fertility Center. Under the leadership of Dr. Amos E. Madanes, the team has consistently used the procedure to make the dream of a family a reality for hundreds of infertile patients that have sought help at Midwest Fertility Center for almost 30 years.
To begin the procedure, the doctor applies a technique called ovarian hyper stimulation, which involves the injection of hormones. Through ultrasound technology and laparoscopic camera angles, the doctor utilizes the small window of opportunity to retrieve the egg from the patient’s ovary. When the Midwest Fertility Center doctor has successfully displaced the egg from the ovary, he combines it with a sample of sperm. The source of this sperm is a donor designated by Midwest Fertility Center. Before combining it with the egg, Midwest Fertility Center puts it through a series of treatments in order to ensure its viability. The patient’s egg and donor’s sperm is placed together in an incubator. This creates an environment conducive for successful fertilization, which usually takes place within three days.
The resulting embryos are transferred back into the patient’s uterus by a Midwest Fertility Center specialist through a simple step similar in nature to a pelvic examination. Midwest Fertility Center determines the overall success of the operation ten to twelve days after its completion, when a pregnancy test is administered.
Incredibly, more often than not the treatment is successful, as Midwest Fertility Center boasts a 60% success rate. Midwest Fertility Center credits their success to the expertise of their doctors. However, Midwest Fertility Center notes that a number of factors can cause complications resulting in treatment failure. These factors include the age of the patient, the health of the uterus, the quality of the sperm and egg, and duration of infertility.
