Our certified lab is crucial to your success.
The Texas Center for Reproductive Health utilizes state of the art equipment and technology. Our on-site operating suite and laboratory received prestigious accreditation by the College of American Pathologists.
We have been performing IVF/ET and other related assisted reproduction technologies continually since 1989.
Our personnel have been trained specifically in reproduction medicine, reproduction endocrinology, medical endocrinology, andrology (care of male patients),embryology and laboratory medicine.
Our approach to your specific fertility issues is patient focused and science based, so as a patient you can expect:
- Treatment protocols unique to each couple
- Access to staff and your physician 7 days a week
- Answers to any question you may have
- More than 45 years on the leading edge of fertility and endocrinology research
- A certified high-tech lab and specially designed surgical suite on-site
- Board-certified endocrinologist, andrologist, embryologist, and cryo-biologist
- On-site cryo-bank
Our intensive diagnostics and state of the art treatments are designed to do one thing: deliver the best outcomes for you. And that’s our idea of success. Due to the time required to collect and publish Assisted Reproductive Technology data, the information is several years old and outdated. The National data for Assisted Reproductive Technology can be found below through the CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention).
The average couple seeking care at Texas Center for Reproductive Health may not require invitro fertilization embryo transfer to achieve pregnancy and delivery.
Often, a diagnosis is made and treatment performed with pregnancy and delivery following.
Our success rates related to assisted reproduction procedures can be found at the website for the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology and at the website for the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. These data are updated yearly and are for a period in time approximately one to two years preceding the current date. The delay in reporting is necessary to permit the time required for pregnancy to complete and to permit data collection and for collation of the data.

Differences Between Pregnancy Rates per Egg Retrieval and per Embryo Transfer
Not all egg retrievals end up with fresh embryo transfer and therefore, not all egg retrievals will immediately count towards establishing pregnancy. In such situations, the pregnancy rate per embryo transfer is a reasonable indicator of how well the IVF/embryo transfer process worked.
Depending on several circumstances, fresh embryos may have to be cryopreserved for a future attempt at embryo transfer.
Such situations include:
- Embryo biopsy for genetic screening
- Uterine receptivity issues
- Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome which is severe
- Embryo cryopreservation for fertility preservation
When any data are reviewed the source of the data must be considered. Data that conforms to rigorous standards and is subject to verification is published by both SART and the CDC.
We have copies of the SART and CDC reports for current data for the calendar year 2019. If you would like to see of our current data please make a request to Center personnel.
