Our fertility specialists are here to help you with any questions or concerns regarding IVF, assisted reproduction, egg donation, preimplantation genetic diagnosis - pgd, infertility, and anything associated with having a baby. Help from the most advanced techniques in reproductive medicine has allowed millions of infertile couples to build the families they desire. Many have found success at the Institute for Reproductive Medicine and Science of Saint Barnabas (IRMS). Here's why:

IRMS is one of the nation’s leading fertility centers, we provide patients with state-of-the-art clinical infertility treatment, supported by the latest scientific knowledge and laboratory techniques. The infertility services offered include: in vitro fertilization (IVF), preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD), intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), egg freezing, embryo freezing, and blastocyst transfer. Other services include egg donation, emotional support, and genetic counseling. Our success in treating both male infertility as well as female infertility is evidenced by the IRMS' pregnancy rates, which are among the highest in the world.

The IVF clinic at IRMS has the most extensive staff of reproductive professionals in the country. Because a successful infertility treatment cycle is related to the type and quality of treatment rendered in each individual case, it is important to consider the knowledge, training and expertise of both the clinical staff and laboratory staff when you are choosing an infertility program. Our infertility clinic consists of:

  • Board-certified reproductive endocrinologists specializing in all aspects of infertility and reproductive endocrinology including PCOs (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome), endometriosis, fibroids, premature ovarian failure, recurrent pregnancy loss.

  • A laboratory team of embryologists that are trained in the latest artificial reproductive techniques including: blastocyst freezing, assisted hatching, fragment removal, embryo biopsy, blastocyst transfer, egg donation, as well as the standard techniques of semen analysis, IVF, ICSI, single sperm freezing, embryo transfer, embryo freezing, etc..

  • A preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) team of professionals that can assist in genetic counseling, emotional support, embryo biopsy, polar body biopsy, Flourescent In Situ Hybridization (FISH), chromosome painting, and comparative genomic hybridization (CGH). They specialize in helping those patients that have a history of failed IVF cycles and those with unexplained infertility and genetically-related infertility problems.

  • A reproductive research team, (including numerous Ph.D's) led by IVF pioneer Jacques Cohen. Our reproductive research is geared towards improving the already high pregnancy rates of our infertility clinic. We are currently: 1) exploring the molecular mechanisms of infertility, 2) developing better ways of egg freezing (oocyte cryopreservation), embryo freezing, and blastocyst freezing including vitrification, 3) improving embryo culture to reduce fragmentation and improve embryo transfer success, and 4) testing more effective and extensive methods of genetic analysis. The research team has over 10 patents associated with infertility treatment and many more pending. They have won numerous research awards at national and international conferences and have well over 300 publications in leading reproductive journals.
