Full Service IVF Laboratory
Braverman IVF & Reproductive Immunology is proud to host a full-service IVF center that works in providing effective in vitro fertilization
treatments. Our practice consists of a highly specialized team of medical professionals including Board Certified Reproductive Endocrinologists, who all have a minimum of two decades of experience. We encourage all patients to utilize the services provided at our IVF laboratory, conveniently located in Manhattan, to better ensure the medical aspects of their situation are correctly handled. As we possess a unique understanding and knowledge of
reproductive immunology, we are able to apply a more thorough understanding of the causes of infertility. For many patients, we are their last stop - you should make us your first. We are widely recognized as one of the nation's top infertility treatment centers and have even been voted as the number one fertility clinic in Long Island for the past three years. Included among the procedures performed at our lab are:
Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) - This method is primarily used to assist in the fertilization of individuals with low sperm counts or an abnormal morphology (shape). The ICSI process has also been found effective with older patients and those with
poor egg quality.
- Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD Biopsy) - This is a procedure performed on Days 3 and 5 to aid in the diagnosis of genetic issues prior to the transfer of an embryo, as well as determine the sex for family balancing. In general, we recommend that this method be used to rule out the possibility of genetic disorders, rather than as a general screening for them.
- In Vitro Maturation (IVM) - Through this process, we are able to mature eggs which are retrieved at immature levels, thereby making them viable for fertilization. Whereas many other centers would be quick to discard the retrieval of immature eggs, we are more apt to use them whenever possible, hence increasing the potential for pregnancy among our patients.
- Defragmentation - Our lab has perfected the technique of removing "fragments" that lower the grade and quality of an embryo on the third day of embryonic life. By removing fragments from between the cells, we are able to create a more symmetrical division and increase the number of high grade embryos available.
- Early Transfer For Poor Ovarian Reserve Patients - We utilize the method of early Day 2 transfers; this has proven greatly successful for patients with poor responder or decreased ovarian reserves.
