BASKING RIDGE, N.J., April 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Reproductive Medicine Associates of New Jersey (RMANJ), known for their innovative and evidence-based infertility care, continues to lead the way with in vitro fertilization (IVF) success rates above the U.S. average. Annual data released recently by Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART) for the year ending December 2014 shows RMANJ with success rates of 63.2% (n=886)* in women under age 35.
"Every potential patient who is exploring fertility care in New Jersey and across the US should look to SART first and review success rates by their age group," offered Dr. Michael R. Drews, a founding partner and medical director for RMANJ's main campus in Basking Ridge, NJ. "Patients should review the data with their healthcare provider. SART provides strong and federally mandated outcome data, offering hopeful patients powerful information that can help them improve their chance of being successful in the shortest time possible."
To provide better clarity and transparency for patients, SART has updated its reporting structure. Starting with the 2014 data, the SART report will break down success rates into embryo transfer attempt categories, including primary, secondary and all attempts. Live birth rates will now be reported per patient. The new 2014 fertility outcomes data report can be found at www.sart.org.
"For nearly 20 years, RMANJ has been focused on innovation and success. But success isn't just getting someone pregnant," said Dr. Thomas Molinaro, a partner at RMANJ and lead physician at the Eatontown, NJ office. "Our goal is a healthy pregnancy and delivery. And hopefully one baby at a time with single embryo transfer."
RMANJ offers the widest range of services including: IVF, SelectCCS (comprehensive chromosome screening), pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD), fertility preservation services, egg donation, gestational surrogacy, acupuncture, yoga and patient-to-patient networking. "When starting your fertility journey, it's not just about finding any doctor or practice that can help you make your dreams come true. And it's not just about pregnancy rates. It's about delivery rates and how dedicated each doctor and nurse is to you and your needs," said RMANJ patient, Kim Genco, "Sites like SART.org, RESOLVE.org and FertiliTalk Patient Network are great tools for patients to access important information when choosing care," added Kim.
As required by the Fertility Clinic Success Rate and Certification Act of 1992, reproductive endocrinologists must report IVF delivery rates to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and SART, the primary organization of professionals dedicated to the practice of assisted reproductive technologies in the United States.
