FSAC is pleased to present our live birth and pregnancy rates for the calendar year 2014. In our quest to provide the best opportunity for each individual or couple to conceive, we are continually upgrading our treatment methods and our IVF laboratory equipment and environment. The results of FSAC’s efforts can be seen in our impressive success rates. There are three key factors to FSAC’s successful live birth and pregnancy rates:
• Our esteemed physicians, Drs. Richard Buyalos, Gary Hubert, and Mousa Shamonki are board certified and award-winning leaders in the field with advanced training in reproductive medicine and an outstanding and proven track record in all areas of infertility diagnosis and treatment.
• IVF Laboratory Director Dr. Wang is an acknowledged expert in several of the primary techniques that improve the chances for a successful pregnancy, such as PGD, PGS, CGH, and ICSI. He has assembled an outstanding team of embryologists who use the latest cutting edge techniques. Our onsite, state-of-the-art in vitro fertilization (IVF) laboratory and on-site surgery center serve patients from Los Angeles and Ventura Counties, across the nation and around the world.
• Our dedicated team of nurses and support staff is here every step of the way to ensure each patient’s experience with us is exceptional by delivering outstanding consistent support and care throughout their entire treatment process.
The chart below shows our most current audited IVF ART Pregnancy Rates per transfer with euploid embryos in a subsequent cryopreserved cycle, which resulted in live births and pregnancies from donor eggs and frozen embryos from non-donor eggs from January 2014 through December 2014:

Live Birth Rates
FSAC is very proud of our IVF live birth ART success rates. Our outcomes are among the best in the nation. FSAC pregnancy rates are particularly favorable when viewed in light of the range of patients we treat. We welcome all patients who seek our help, regardless of previous outcomes.
Our IVF ART success rates represent all of our patients, including those whose hormone levels, reduced egg quality and/or other factors that may have made them less likely to have a successful pregnancy through IVF. Pregnancy rates for couples whose hormone levels and egg supply that are normal are significantly higher than those listed below. FSAC is also pleased that our rate for multiple births (triplets or more) was less than 1% during this period.
These positive pregnancy rates reflect the care and dedication of the entire FSAC team. Drs. Buyalos, Hubert, and Shamonki use the ovarian-stimulation protocols that have been shown to be most effective. The expertise of Dr. Wang, our highly regarded IVF lab director, combined with our state-of-the-art laboratory, contribute to making sure the embryos most likely to result in a successful pregnancy are transferred to our patients.
Pregnancy Rates with Other Treatments
While FSAC is well-known for its IVF successes, the team is also proud of its achievements and is committed to helping patients with less aggressive treatments whenever possible. Our philosophy is to evaluate every possible cause of infertility and, as a result, most of our patients are able to conceive without expensive or elaborate treatments. When appropriate, we provide patients with a regimen of therapy to stimulate ovulation, in conjunction with insemination or timed intercourse, rather than moving directly to IVF. FSAC performs more than 1,400 inseminations annually. Many of our patients conceive with this therapy, incurring significantly lower costs than with IVF.
We owe our success in treating infertility to our physicians’ meticulous monitoring of our patients. Our board certified physicians monitor egg growth and preparedness for insemination and perform all direct and ancillary procedures, including intrauterine insemination, and ultrasounds.
Many of our patients come to us after having had unsuccessful treatment elsewhere. Many of these patients, for whom we were able to diagnose subtle difficulties, have gone on to achieve successful pregnancies at FSAC.
Reporting Our Statistics to Oversight Organizations
FSAC reports its statistics to SART (Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology), a division of the ASRM (American Society for Reproductive Medicine), the central reporting agency that ensures and verifies through audit, the accuracy of pregnancy rate data.
