Providing safe, effective treatments for infertility
The Center for Reproductive Medicine specializes in the comprehensive evaluation and treatment of infertility. It is the largest infertility clinic in Minnesota and was established at Abbott Northwestern in 1987.
Primary infertility describes couples who have never been able to become pregnant after at least 1 year of unprotected sex (intercourse).
The Center for Reproductive Medicine provides a range of services from initial evaluations and treatments to assisted reproductive technologies such as in vitro fertilization (IVF), intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) to treat male infertility, testicular sperm extraction and pre-implantation genetic diagnosis. A donor egg program and a gestational carrier program are also available. Embryos and eggs may be frozen for use in a variety of infertility treatments.
The caring and expert staff is dedicated to providing safe and effective reproductive care options, and they are skilled in treating simple and complex reproductive problems. The team includes physicians, embryologists, nurses, andrologists, psychologists, geneticists, laboratory technicians and allied health care professionals.
