IVF New Jersey Now Performs Hysterosalpingograms and Tubal Catheterizations in the Somerset Office

We are pleased to announce that we now perform hysterosalpingograms (HSG) in the comfort of our Somerset office. In addition, if a tubal blockage is diagnosed at the time of the HSG, we can, at the same sitting, perform a tubal catheterization to correct the blockage. If successful, a major surgical procedure to unblock the tube will be avoided.

The HSG and tubal catheterization procedures are performed using the most advanced technology available, the OEC 9800 C-Arm. In fact, at the time of this writing, we are one of only two fertility centers in the country using this state-of-the-art technology. Please refer to Testing and Diagnostics for more information.

IVF New Jersey Embryology Laboratory Receives Accreditations from College of American Pathologists

IVF New Jersey Embryology Laboratory, Somerset, New Jersey, has been awarded an accreditation by the Commission on Laboratory Accreditation of the College of American Pathologists (CAP), based on the results of a recent on-site inspection.

The laboratory’s director was advised of this national recognition and congratulated for the “excellence of the services being provided.”

IVF New Jersey Embryology Laboratory is one of the more than 6,000 CAP-accredited laboratories nationwide.

The CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program, begun in the early 1960s, is recognized by the federal government as being equal to or more stringent than the government’s own inspection program.

During the CAP accreditation process, inspectors examine the laboratory’s records and quality control of procedures for the preceding two years.  CAP inspectors also examine the entire staff’s qualifications, the laboratory’s equipment, facilities, safety program and record, as well as the overall management of the laboratory.  This stringent inspection program is designed to specifically ensure the highest standard of care for the laboratory’s patients.

The College of American Pathologists is a medical society serving nearly 16,000 physician members and the laboratory community throughout the world.  It is the world’s largest association composed exclusively of pathologists and is widely considered the leader in laboratory quality assurance.  The CAP is an advocate for high-quality and cost-effective medical care.

IVF New Jersey High-Order Pregnancy

Rates Are Lowest in the U.S.

Somerset, New Jersey — September 30, 2004

The New England Journal of Medicine has recently reported significant reductions in the incidence of multiple gestations resulting from the use of assisted reproductive technology. IVF New Jersey reports lower high-order rates than NEJM.

“We’re very proud of our high pregnancy rates, but our biggest accomplishment has been the reduction of high-order pregnancies achieved through IVF. This has minimized the chances of delivering premature babies that are severely handicapped and the devastation this can cause to parents and their children.”
- Dr. Michael Darder, co-director, IVF New Jersey

The decrease in the number of embryos transferred per cycle is the major contributing factor to the corresponding decrease of pregnancies with three or more fetuses. IVF New Jersey has pioneered programs that have led the way toward reducing high-order multiple births. In 2003, IVF NJ reports a less than 2% incidence of triplets in women age <35, and 0% in women 35 or older. There were no quadruplets or higher order pregnancies reported for any age group.

Blastocyst transfer maximizes pregnancy rates while minimizing the risk of multiple pregnancies. The ability to grow embryos for five days to the blastocyst stage of development allows clinicians to select the best two embryos to transfer back to the mother. This reduces the occurrence of potentially risky multiple births.

These procedures have had high success rates with women who have healthy eggs but have difficulty conceiving. But there are women who have difficulty becoming pregnant because their egg quality is poor or may have no eggs due to early menopause, chemotherapy or surgery. The solution for these candidates is egg donation IVF. IVF New Jersey has a 63% delivery rate for egg donation, one of the highest worldwide. Usually such high delivery rates are the result of transferring a large number of embryos. However, by transferring only two blastocysts, IVF New Jersey has maintained the lowest triplet rate of only 2%. The complexity of egg donation IVF requires synchronizing the menstrual cycles of the donor and recipient, inducing the donor to release many mature eggs at once, retrieving eggs by ultrasound guidance, inseminating and fertilizing the eggs, then placing the embryos into the recipient’s uterus. IVF NJ goes to extraordinary lengths to find qualified, healthy, young egg donors. This includes intensive medical and psychological screening, to ensure a healthy match. Since 1992, over 1,000 egg donation procedures have been performed at IVF NJ, matching patients with an appropriate donor on an average of two months, often immediately.

IVF New Jersey, one of the largest fertility practices in the world and one of the most successful IVF and egg donation centers, has become an international destination fertility center. As Board Certified Reproductive Endocrinologists, IVF NJ physicians are leaders in the field of reproductive medicine. Couples have come from as far away as Australia to experience the vision, expertise, and compassion of the physicians and staff. IVF NJ partners with its clients to successfully grow families and offer a wide variety of infertility services and solutions, including working with same sex couples.

IVF NJ was founded in 1990 with the goal of creating a fertility practice that combines the best of big-city medicine with personalized care in a private setting. For the past 13 years, IVF NJ has helped bring thousands of babies to couples and individuals in the metropolitan area and throughout the world. IVF NJ’s unique state-of-the-art facilities allow the doctors to perform all standard infertility diagnostic and treatment procedures under one roof, in a comfortable, suburban, non-hospital setting.

In every situation, IVF NJ strives to personalize each patient’s care, medically, emotionally, and financially. IVF NJ provides assistance in affording treatment to couples whose insurance policies do not cover infertility treatment.

But there is more to success than statistics. In addition to providing the highest quality reproductive services, IVF NJ also strives to treat each patient with the most personalized care and deepest respect. Success in these areas can only be measured by their patients’ comments:

“Thank you for this miracle we waited so long for and thank you for your emotional kindness and compassion throughout a difficult time. You all were outstanding.”

“Thanks … for the wonderful way you handled our treatment. … The compassion you showed in explaining our chances and helping us make the decision to move forward will forever be remembered … and here is Jillian to show for it … against all odds!”

For many couples, the road to pregnancy can be a difficult and anxiety-ridden path. The frustration and challenges can be overwhelming. In fact, infertility affects nearly one in every six couples in the U.S. Since medical history was made in 1978 when the first test-tube baby was born, there has been real hope for every couple struggling with infertility issues. In vitro fertilization has evolved into a highly specialized, cutting-edge field offering a number of procedures with impressive success rates. The groundbreaking fertility procedures performed at IVF New Jersey have helped many couples make their little miracles come true.

Co-director, Susan Treiser, M.D., Ph.D., one of the few female directors of an IVF center in the U.S., has appeared on the Today Show, CNN, and The Discovery Channel, and served as a keynote speaker aboard R Family Vacations’ maiden cruise. Dr. Treiser has also been invited to lead a panel on fertility at the Governor’s Conference for Women, which will be held on October 6th in New Brunswick. Along with co-director Michael Darder, M.D., Dr. Treiser appeared in an educational documentary that was shown domestically and internationally on Continental Airlines. Drs. Darder and Treiser will host a Q & A segment as “Ask the Experts” in Conceive Magazine, a national magazine premiering in September of 2004.

Feature articles have appeared in Princeton Business Journal, Journal Register — Bucks County, Bucks County Herald, Greater Media Newspapers, The Star Ledger, Bergen Record, Asbury Park Press, Courier News, Home News, The Times, and US1 Newspapers in New Jersey.

IVF NJ Introduces Donor Sharing

Immediate donors – Greatly reduced cost – High success rates

Somerset, New Jersey — May 13, 2002

IVF New Jersey (IVF NJ) now allows two couples to share the product of a single egg donor, thereby allowing the couples to share in the expense of the ovum donation process.

In a process that may cost nearly $22,500 normally, this greatly reduced rate is significant. It is a goal of IVF NJ to have their highly successful treatments be affordable to all couples interested in family building. Donor sharing will decrease a couple’s costs by approximately 35 percent.

“Couples struggling with infertility, who are interested in being an egg recipient, should have no trouble finding the donor of their choice, either through an independent broker or directly through IVF NJ. We have a large pool of egg donors available to select from. Usually, a match can be done immediately,” said Susan Treiser, M.D., Ph.D., co-director and co-founder of IVF NJ.

Among large programs (those registering 50 or more treatment cycles), IVF NJ boasts the highest delivery rate in the eastern United States, according to the latest report from the Centers for Disease Control.

This move is yet another positive step in the direction of providing assistance to couples whose insurance policies do not fall under the recently passed Family Building Act of New Jersey. In other recent announcements, IVF NJ introduced a low flat-rate for women not covered by the Family Building Act.

A strong supporter of mandated insurance coverage, IVF New Jersey worked closely with patient advocacy groups in the campaign to pass the Family Building Act. While the new law is a landmark for insurance of coverage of infertility treatment, some have been left behind.

IVF New Jersey was founded in 1990 with the goal of creating a fertility practice that combines the best of big-city medicine with the personalized care of a private setting. For the past 12 years, IVF NJ has helped bring thousands of babies to couples in the metropolitan region and throughout the world. IVF NJ’s unique cutting-edge facilities allow the doctors to perform all standard infertility diagnostic and treatment procedures under one roof, all in a comfortable, suburban, non-hospital setting. With a new state-of-the-art facility opening in Somerset this month, and with offices in Princeton Junction and Freehold, IVF NJ will be one of the largest fertility centers in the nation with over 15,500 square feet of space for IVF procedures and patient care.

Dr. Treiser is the only female director of a fertility center in New Jersey and one of only a few nationwide. IVF NJ expects Dr. Yih’s presence will be warmly welcomed not only because of her gender, but also because of her experience and education.

“I am very pleased to join IVF NJ,” said Dr. Yih. “The practice builds so many wonderful families for couples and individuals throughout New Jersey, and beyond. I look forward to helping IVF NJ broaden its reach even further now, and make successful family building options even more accessible to all who need them.”

Affordable Infertility Treatment for New Jersey Couples

IVF NJ Offers Low Flat Rate for Women Not Covered by Family Building Act

Somerset, New Jersey — April 18, 2002

IVF New Jersey (IVF NJ) now provides assistance in affording their highly successful treatments to couples whose insurance policies do not fall under the recently passed Family Building Act of New Jersey.

A strong supporter of mandated insurance coverage, IVF New Jersey worked closely with patient advocacy groups in the campaign to pass the Family Building Act. While the new law is a landmark for insurance of coverage of infertility treatment, some have been left behind.

“After all the hard work to get the Family Building Act passed, we realized that many women still lacked coverage for infertility treatment. We feel strongly that family building should not only be an option of the very wealthy. In an effort to remedy the injustice, we instituted a flat rate for New Jersey residents who are not benefiting from the new law,” said Susan Treiser, M.D., Ph.D., Co-Director and Founder of IVF NJ.

“The Family Building Act keeps treatment decision-making in the doctor’s office and makes quality care available to so many in New Jersey. Our new flat rate system now opens these options to all couples in need,” continued Dr. Treiser.

The Family Building Act places New Jersey as one of the few states in the nation with extensive mandated insurance coverage for infertility. The legislation requires insurance companies to cover medically necessary expenses incurred in the diagnosis and treatment of infertility, including diagnostic tests, medications, surgical procedures, intrauterine inseminations, and up to four in vitro fertilization procedures. However, policy groups of less than 50 members, as well as self insured, religious, Medicaid, Federal, and out-of-state policies are not included in the mandate.

Largest Fertility Center in New Jersey Helping Infertile Couples From Europe Unable to Access Services at Home

Infertile People Facing Relative Exile – Disease Is Being Stripped from Medical Arena for Sake of Politicizing Issue

Somerset, New Jersey — June 24, 2002

For the past 12 years, IVF New Jersey (IVF NJ), New Jersey’s largest state-of-the-art fertility center, has been treating infertile couples from Europe and elsewhere around the world. Increasingly, international couples are seeking treatment here due to the inaccessibility of these services in their home countries.

“IVF NJ has been witness to the difficulties people outside the U.S. have in getting IVF and other assisted reproductive technology (ART) treatments, as we have been treating them for years,” said Susan Treiser, M.D., Ph.D., Co-Founder and Director of IVF NJ. “As much as we love helping people build families, not all people can afford to travel to the United States to undergo these treatments, and they shouldn’t have to. People should have access to these treatments in their own countries.”

Currently, legislative bills on the table in Italy and Australia threaten to bring an end to research and practice of reproductive medicine, significantly infringing on women’s rights and crushing the family-building dreams of millions of couples around the world.

“Infertility is a disease, and should be treated as such,” Dr. Treiser said. “To politicize the issue strips the treatment of this disease out of the hands of doctors, and ties it up in government unnecessarily. This kind of legislation will only serve to make it even harder for couples interested in family building, as quality treatments will become even more inaccessible than they already are.”

Earlier this week, the Italian parliament announced the approval of a proposed law that would regulate ART treatments and research. The law would ban donor insemination, deny infertility treatment to single women, forbid insurance coverage of fertility treatments, and ban crucial research on embryos, as well as freezing embryos, which allows extra embryos to be used in the future for conceiving as opposed to being discarded.

In Australia, a similar bill which is due to be tabled next week would significantly affect reproductive medical practice and research aimed at helping infertile couples. This bill in its current form will ban current IVF practices that are necessary for maintaining and improving pregnancy rates.

IVF New Jersey’s success rates are among the highest in the nation. Founded in 1990 with the goal of creating a fertility practice that combines the best of big-city medicine with the personalized care of a private setting, IVF NJ’s unique cutting-edge facilities allow the doctors to perform all standard infertility diagnostic and treatment procedures under one roof, all in a comfortable, suburban, non-hospital setting.

Time Is of the Essence

IVF New Jersey Offers Shortest Wait Times for Ovum Donation Recipients

Somerset, New Jersey — January 6, 2003

IVF-New Jersey (IVF NJ), one of the largest fertility centers in the northeast, offers the shortest wait times for egg donor recipients by maintaining a large number of readily available egg donors. Whereas most egg donor programs have a six month to two year wait, at IVF NJ egg recipients are matched within 2 months on average, and often at their first visit.

“We don’t want our patients to have to wait longer than they have to start their treatment,” said Susan Treiser, Ph.D., Co-Director of IVF NJ. “Couples and individuals seeking donated eggs for IVF usually find their appropriate match almost immediately at IVF NJ. When it comes to receiving fertility treatment, time can mean so much. Our short wait times combined with our high success rates keep IVF NJ quite busy helping to build new families.

IVF NJ has highly experienced egg donor coordinators who assist couples in choosing the right egg donor for their family. Dr. Helane Rosenberg, who has twins from egg donation at IVF NJ, has matched close to one thousand egg donors with recipients over the past ten years.

Equally important is the fact that, according to the CDC, when compared to other large egg donor programs, IVF NJ has the highest delivery rate in the eastern United States.

IVF New Jersey and Extend Fertility to Help Women Stop the Ticking of the “Biological Clock”

New service gives women the option to freeze and store eggs — preserving them for future use

Somerset, New Jersey –October, 2004

IVF New Jersey (IVF NJ) today announced an exclusive partnership with Extend Fertility, a key provider of fertility preservation technology and service, to provide egg freezing services to women. The service will allow women to proactively plan for the future — just as they plan for personal and professional development — by freezing and storing their young, healthier eggs for the time when they are ready to start their families. IVF NJ will be one of the first centers where Extend Fertility clients can have the service provided.

Today, approximately one out of every three women in her thirties has never been married versus approximately one in ten in 1970. This dramatic shift in social demographics has resulted in a growing anxiety around the option of motherhood.

“In the past, women were bound by the limitations of time when it came to their reproductive choices. Women who wanted to get pregnant later in life were faced with egg quality issues,” says Dr. Susan Treiser, Co-Director of IVF NJ. “This will allow women who have not yet decided to have children to preserve their eggs until a time in their life when they are ready to have a family.”

Because women’s bodies ovulate the best eggs first, fertility peaks during the mid 20s and begins to decline around the age of 30. By the mid 30s and early 40s, a woman’s chances of getting pregnant using her own eggs dramatically decreases to less than 10%. By the early 40s, nearly half of those eggs contain genetic abnormalities. “This way, when a woman freezes her eggs, for example, around the age of 31, she can be assured that the eggs she is storing are the most viable eggs she’ll ever have.” explains Dr. Treiser.

“Women of the past two generations have been told that they can have it all — work, personal success, a family,” said Christy Jones, founder and CEO, Extend Fertility. “Unfortunately, the reality is that our biology — specifically, our eggs — haven’t evolved with those opportunities. IVF NJ and Extend will give women more control when it comes to making these difficult life-timing decisions.”

The service is expected to appeal to a broad range of women — from cancer patients facing chemotherapy, to single, professional women and couples starting their families later in life. By taking advantage of the technology to freeze and preserve younger, healthier eggs, women can expect a pregnancy success rate later in life that is closer to their natural peak fertility rate of 20-30%.* The service will be offered on an investigational basis. Following an initial screening and education process, individuals interested in the Extend Fertility service will be referred to IVF NJ for treatment.

Local Physicians Strive to Help Couples Through Infertility

Anne Weisgerber
Bernardsville News, August, 2000

It’s a common problem here in the northeast. Many couples wait until they are in their thirties or forties to begin a family — after the careers are established and the money is under control. But there are complications associated with childbearing later in life.

It’s a common problem here in the northeast. Many couples wait until they are in their thirties or forties to begin a family — after the careers are established and the money is under control. But there are complications associated with childbearing later in life.And if you are suffering with infertility (the inability to conceive), chances are there’s no one in your immediate circle of friends and family who knows how to listen, support you, and help. “Just keep trying,” they’ll say. Or even worse, “maybe it’s not meant to be.” And friends all seem to breeze into motherhood, while month after month your disappointment becomes depressing.Many couples, many women, have been there. And many have resolved their infertility problems through a caring support group called RESOLVE.RESOLVE is a national non-profit organization dedicated to providing education and support to the unique needs of people struggling to build a family. They understand that infertility is more than an illness; “it’s a devastating life crisis which can impact negatively” on the couple’s marriage, health, and both work and personal relationships. RESOLVE has a thriving New Jersey chapter, and keeps a Warren Township mailing address.RESOLVE is a godsend to many, connecting those in need to the right infertility and adoption resources, as well as providing peer support meetings, counseling and support referrals, and advocacy to the health care industry.

And the Zenith Goes To . . .
RESOLVE of New Jersey recently honored two local physicians with the Zenith Award, the group’s highest award, for outstanding support of infertility issues and patients.

More than 150 attended the May 18 gala at the Liberty Science Center to honor Doctors Michael C. Darder and Susan L. Treiser, of IVF New Jersey Fertility and Gynecology Center.

IVF New Jersey has offices in both Somerset and Freehold. IVF stands for in vitro (Latin for “in the glass”) fertilization.

The first IVF babies were often referred to as test tube babies. The egg and sperm meet in a laboratory dish, and resultant embryos go through an incubator period before being transferred to the womb.

The doctors at IVF New Jersey have a unique claim to fame: back in 1992, they were responsible for the first egg donation conception in New Jersey. (Meaning they successfully fertilized a donor egg in vitro, and transferred it to the recipient’s womb.) Since 1992, IVF New Jersey has been responsible for the births of more than 1,000 babies. Clients come from all over the state and country; there’s even a couple from Ireland.

Dr. Darder says of receiving the Zenith award, “It was an exciting moment for [Dr. Treiser and me]. It gave us the chance to say thank you to everyone who works with us and for us.”

Nancy Marsillo of Warren Township was the gala chairperson, and agreed, “It was a great night for us to honor these doctors, both of whom are such long-time supporters of RESOLVE.”

Although it was one of those strangely stormy May days in New Jersey (Marsillo recalls it being 95 degrees during the day, and the sky filled with rollicking thunderstorms that evening), Dr. Darder says it was a beautiful ceremony. “My uncle was with me, and he told me that the event, and the beautiful awards presented, reminded him of the Oscars. This was a real honor.”

And Drs. Darder and Treiser like being volunteers with RESOLVE. They often speak at RESOLVE seminars, and write articles or the organization’s newsletter. “People with infertility problems are so hungry for information. RESOLVE offers them opportunity to meet, discuss, and dispel the myths,” says Darder.

At their IVF New Jersey offices, Drs. Darder and Treiser are committed to offering patients rapidly developing fertility technology as soon as possible, and also to improve patient experiences. The long waits at some New York clinics have been likened to standing in line at a deli, where you wait a long time to spend a short few minutes with a different doctor every time. IVF New Jersey wants to avoid heaping that kind of stress upon their patients.
