We Are Among the Leading (Top 5%) World IVF Programs
In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)
Welcome to the IVF information pages of The Fertility Institutes. We maintain our own world recognized In Vitro Fertilization laboratories at each of our centers in Los Angeles, New York and Guadalajara, Mexico. Our combined success rates for pregnancies achieved and healthy babies born have remained one of the top programs nationwide for over 30 years.
Summary of the IVF Process
Your IVF care will be carried out by a dedicated team headed by reproductive endocrinologist Dr. Jeffrey Steinberg. Unlike many multi-physician programs that divide patient care between sometimes dozens of physicians, all professionals in our practice will know your individual case intimately. We begin IVF cycles based on your individual menstrual pattern, rather than grouping cases together for clinic convenience. For those undertaking IVF in our program, we offer the additional options of PGD 99.9% gender selection and eye color selection that allow you to choose the sex and likely eye color of your pregnancy.
We are the world's largest and most successful gender selection program (click here) and have performed hundreds of cases while maintaining a near perfect (99.9%) success rate in achieving the desired gender outcome!

There are no agency fees charged for our donors. This can lead to a savings in the thousands of dollars! We have near immediate availability of tested and screened gestational surrogates as well.
