High Intervention Care (IVF)

High intervention care, or in vitro fertilization (IVF), is the most effective fertility treatment available today and most often the fastest route to a healthy pregnancy.

IVF involves stimulating the ovaries with hormonal medications to develop multiple eggs, retrieving mature eggs from the ovaries, and fertilizing them with sperm in a controlled laboratory setting. The fertilized eggs, now embryos, can then be transferred back into the uterus, aiming for a successful implantation and pregnancy. Alternatively, these embryos can be genetically tested and frozen, or simply frozen for future use.  

There are several reasons to choose IVF. Your fertility doctor will help you determine if IVF is the best treatment option for you.

A Picture from Pollin's Lab

Industry leading lab team and facilities

One of the most overlooked yet critical aspects in driving success in IVF is the lab. Sperm, eggs and embryos are extremely vulnerable and must be handled with the most delicate care. 

Our specially trained and experienced embryologists have implemented the highest grade protocols around embryo tracking and development. 

Our advanced lab is the heartbeat of our operation, giving you access to the latest biomedical equipment including state of the art embryo incubators, IVF micro tools, powerful microscopes, and advanced digital management protocols. We couple this with cutting edge technology, like time lapse technology and ML/AI, to make sure that your sperm, eggs or embryos have the greatest probability for success. 

Our digital chain of custody protocols ensure the integrity of specimens are preserved to the highest levels and minimizes the ability for human error. 

Our high quality air filtration system is customized for embryology and exceeds the highest accreditation standards. We employ careful light and temperature control which is monitored through technology which captures over 300 data points a day to ensure that the external environmental factors are ideal for embryo creation.

What to expect

The goal of an IVF cycle is to stimulate the ovaries to retrieve the optimal number of eggs required to obtain enough healthy embryos to result in at least one pregnancy.  

Every IVF cycle starts with a personalized plan developed based on your unique fertility profile and family building goals.
