Over 30 Years of Experience With Higher Than Average Success Rates

The Utah Center for Reproductive Medicine (UCRM) is a national leader in infertility care and has over 30 years of experience in diagnosing and treating infertility. Our success rates are as important to us as they are to our patients.

UCRM is a member of the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART), an organization dedicated to practicing assisted reproductive technology. As a SART member, we report our treatment outcomes to SART. SART then validates and reports our treatment outcomes to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

Top IVF Clinic

UCRM continues to be one of the top IVF clinics in the United States. Our success rates are higher than the national average. This speaks to our doctors’ expertise since we treat many difficult, complex cases.

Many factors affect success rates from clinic to clinic. Two important factors for women undergoing IVF who are using their own eggs are:

  • a woman’s age
  • and how many eggs a woman has left in her ovaries (also called ovarian reserve).

As a woman gets older and her ovarian reserve goes down, so do success rates.

But diminished ovarian reserve can also happen in younger women. There are a number of treatment options for women who have diminished ovarian reserve.

Data looking at IVF success rates doesn’t paint a complete picture. The data does compare results between women who are different ages. But this data doesn’t take into account that some women naturally have more (or fewer) eggs left in their ovaries.

We feel that patients can make the best informed decisions about their treatment by understanding their ovarian reserve, or how many eggs they have left. UCRM continues to be a leader in IVF success for both patients with normal and diminished ovarian reserve.

Because we have a long history caring for patients, our program has large volumes of frozen embryos. These embryos were frozen by using techniques that were state-of-the-art five to 15 years ago, but are now less effective than current vitrification techniques. Please talk with your provider to see what your success rates may be if you are using an older frozen embryo. Your doctor will give you an estimate based on the quality and type of cryopreservation that was performed.

Patient Satisfaction

Success rates are an important factor when choosing your fertility specialist. But we also believe that the satisfaction of our patients is equally important, whatever the outcome of their fertility treatment. We strive to deliver the best individual treatment plan and personalized care to all our patients.

University of Utah Health has been ranked in the top 10 of 120 nationally recognized university health care organizations for the last seven years. We also received an award for the quality of our care. Additionally, we were one of the first medical centers to publish all patient satisfaction comments. To us, it’s important to show our commitment to providing evidence-based, compassionate, and cost-effective care.

At UCRM, our first delivery is hope. We aim to care for our patients in a friendly, professional, caring, evidence-based, time sensitive, convenient, and cost-effective way.
