Advanced Fertility Care is committed to helping our patients achieve their goal of becoming a parent. As you will see below, we are proud to report success rates well above the national average, making us a leader in the field of infertility treatment both nationally and in the communities of Phoenix, Arizona. These success rates are the combination of many factors, including physician & embryologist skills, latest technology, and high laboratory standards.

* This is based on actual transfers and does not include cycles that result in freezing of embryos for other reasons such as PGS, Ovarian hyperstimulation, etc.

** Refers to clinical pregnancy with gestational sac and fetal heart rate present by ultrasound.

*** Refers to pregnancies which have resulted in live births for years that this data is available in addition to current ongoing pregnancies not yet reported by SART.

**** Values for this measure will appear artificially low since since many of the pregnancies are still on-going and have not made it to term as of yet

SART and CDC Reporting:  Advanced Fertility Care as well as the majority of reputable fertility clinics have elected to be members of the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART) and have voluntarily chosen to adhere to SART’s guidelines and recommendations for appropriate fertility care.  By being members of SART, fertility centers are required to report their IVF success rates to SART for verification and potential audit every year and these are available to the public.  However, fertility centers that do not belong to SART are still required to report their success rates annually to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) in accordance with the Fertility Clinic Success Rates Act.  Since availability of these reports on both SART and CDC websites is usually delayed by 1-2 years allowing for collection of live birth data and verification, many clinics may also report current ongoing results as well.

We encourage all our patients to please visit the SART website as well as the CDC website for further information and to see national summary data.

Important Note: A comparison of clinic success rates may not be meaningful because patient medical characteristics, treatment approaches and entrance criteria for ART may vary from clinic to clinic.
