RMAPA Pregnancy Rates
RMAPA Success Rates in 2014

The founding partners and physicians at RMAPA have helped to bring more than 16,500 babies to loving parents. It's a record that makes us one of the world's largest and most experienced centers for infertility treatment. Because our physicians are some of the most experienced in the field, RMAPA is also world-renowned for having one of the highest success rates in advanced reproductive techniques. The RMAPA success rates are inclusive of outcomes from patients with all degrees of reproductive disorders and advanced age.

Understanding Success Rates

The IVF program at RMAPA attributes its success to a variety of factors including the experience and dedication of our physician and laboratory teams, individualized IVF protocols, laboratory conditions and techniques, and breakthrough technologies. When it comes to IVF, the roles of the physicians and those of the embryologists in the laboratory are distinctly different, yet equally important. The IVF program at RMAPA is unique because our Director of Assisted Reproductive Technologies, Dr. Richard Scott, is both a board certified Reproductive Endocrinologist and board certified by the American Board of Bioanalysis as an embryologist, andrologist, and high-complexity clinical laboratory director. These unusual qualifications have allowed RMAPA to successfully integrate the clinical and laboratory components of ART to achieve excellent results for our patients.

Prior to 2016, SART and CDC had the same reporting structure for IVF success rates. Beginning in 2016 (for IVF cycles completed in 2014) SART completely re-designed the way it reports IVF success rates. According to SART, this change was made “…to provide patients with outcomes that reflect changes in the way infertility is treated through IVF.” SART also believes the new report accurately identifies the treatment burden to patients (the number of cycles) as well as the best outcome (delivery of a healthy child) by tracking outcomes over time for an individual, including both fresh and frozen embryo transfers. The CDC continues to report IVF success rates using the old reporting structure that most patients and clinics are familiar. RMAPA recognizes that seeing two different reports may create confusion for patients but believes it is important for patients seeking IVF to have access to both reports. Please do not hesitate to ask your nurse or providers if you have any questions about the data or the reports. View the CDC 2013 ART Success Rates.
