The UI Center for Advanced Reproductive Care is recognized as an innovative, international leader with the ability to culture and select embryos most likely to lead to a pregnancy. This has resulted in fewer multiple births while maintaining exceptional pregnancy rates. The Center's in vitro fertilization (IVF) program was established in 1987 and we are:
- Iowa's first IVF program with more than 4,000 deliveries
- Recognized as a national leader for elective single embryo transfers, contributing to the health and safety of mother and child
- Delivery rate consistently above 50 percent per oocyte retrieval for women under age 35 for the past five years
While we have seen many changes in methods used to diagnose and treat infertility, financial, emotional, and ethical decisions must be made before a couple attempts to overcome their infertility through IVF.
