Fertility Treatment Center success rates – In Vitro Fertilization

FTC has a high rate of IVF success because of the skills and dedication of all our staff at our Arizona fertility center. Our success is due to many factors:

  • Our extensive knowledge in reproductive endocrinology, female infertility, and male infertility
  • Our unique embryo freezing strategy of frozen embryo transfer (FET)
  • The FET process allows us to pass on significant cost-savings to patients
  • We take the time to really talk to you and learn your history
  • We provide a complete evaluation, test and diagnostic process
  • Then we talk to you and review of all options available for best pregnancy success
  • We don’t push high-cost procedures, especially if lower costs procedures will work best

It can be difficult to compare success rates from facility to facility, since some organizations screen out patients who are less likely to conceive, giving them inflated success rates. Dr. Craig won’t do that, accepting all patients. He starts with a complete evaluation, tests and diagnostics. Then he develops the treatment plan (whether low, medium or high tech treatments) that he feels will provide the highest chance of success.

Dr. Craig’s overall practice success rate is very high and compares very well nationally, particularly with the over age 35 population, and the overall cost per pregnancy is much lower than other practice models. Dr. Craig believes strongly that every patient deserves a chance at building a family, even at the expense of an artificially depressed IVF success rate. It is important to note that the average patient without infertility problems has only a 20 percent chance of pregnancy per cycle under ideal circumstances.

In short, when selecting a IVF facility, it is important to look at all aspects of your treatment. Compare the total costs and beware of hidden fees. Be willing to spend your own money wisely to get the best medical care possible. Ask your OB/GYN or family doctor for a referral. Ask friends, family, and co-workers who they recommend. Look for board certification of doctors and laboratory personnel. Verify the persons listed are actually there on site performing your procedures, not overseeing from another facility. Avoid gimmicks, ask questions, read, and be a good consumer.

When patients meet with Dr. Craig, they are often surprised to learn that in vitro fertilization (IVF) may not be their first course of treatment. In reality, most patients start with a more basic treatment option. In fact, 74% of treatment cycles performed at Fertility Treatment Center include ovulation induction and intrauterine insemination (IUI) — low-tech treatments requiring less medication and fewer monitoring appointments with a lower cost.
