Southeastern Fertility Center Company Profile

05:12 EST 15th December 2018 | BioPortfolio

Southeastern Fertility Center (SEFC) initiated its In-vitro fertilization (IVF) program in 1984. The first pregnancy was achieved that year and this child was born February 20, 1985. This pregnancy marked not only the first IVF conception of Southeastern Fertility Center, but also the first IVF baby in South Carolina.In the late 1980s SEFC achieved success with the newly developed GIFT (Gamete Intrafallopian Transfer) procedure, which became an important part of its success until 1993. ZIFT (Zygote Intrafallopian Transfer) was also popular at that time and provided the additional advantage of verifying fertilization prior to transfer of the embryo to the fallopian tube. SEFC has since developed a transcervical transfer technique (now known as IVF) that markedly simplified the GIFT and ZIFT procedure and eliminated the need for laparoscopy.
Since 1994 SEFC has focused on IVF and its specialized components, including intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), which has revolutionized treatment of male factor infertility. In our continuing effort to provide state of the art infertility treatment, SEFC has been a pioneer in the utilization of blastocyst transfer that has resulted in significant success with the transfer of two blastocysts as well as blastocyst freezing and subsequent embryo transfer. This has allowed us to improve our pregnancy rates while simultaneously lowering the chances of multiple pregnancies. SEFC has been a member of the national organization of IVF programs, The Society of Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART) since its inception.
Southeastern Fertility Center is also recognized as a leader in Donor Egg Technologies. We have a large donor oocyte program that combines the latest ovarian stimulation and endometrial preparation protocols with blastocyst culture and transfer techniques to maximize pregnancy rates and minimize multiple pregnancies. We also have the ability to lower costs by utilizing split cycles. We are the proud sponsors of the annual Donor Oocyte Meeting in Charleston, South Carolina. Leaders in our field from all over the world have been attending our meeting.
