The Best Science has to Offer

Our combination of modern science and medicine, safe and effective fertility therapies and highly skilled medical professionals make RMACT a successful pioneer in fertility treatments. Some of our top accolades include:

Comprehensive Chromosome Screening (CSS)

Every decade or so a reproductive technology comes along that revolutionizes infertility treatment. Comprehensive Chromosome Screening (CCS) is one such technology. The purpose of CCS is to analyze, select and transfer only embryos that have the appropriate number of chromosomes. Screening embryos in advance can help achieve higher implantation rates and fewer pregnancy losses, particularly for women 35 or older, couples with multiple-failed IVF cycles or implantation failure, and couples with repeated miscarriages. With CCS, the future of genetic and embryo screening has arrived. RMACT is the only fertility program in the state of Connecticut to offer CCS.

Elective Single Embryo Screening (ESET)

At RMACT, we take great pride in being able to offer elective single embryo transfer (ESET). ESET gives patients the opportunity to have a greater than 50% ongoing pregnancy rates while bringing the incidence of twins, triplets and higher order multiple pregnancies down to less than 5%. In order to offer ESET, a fertility practice must be confident in their embryology laboratory; with both the quality of the environment and the work performed by the laboratory technicians. For patients less than 35 years old, ESET is often recommended. ESET offers patients the ability to grow their family, one baby at a time.

Our Pregnancy Rates

Please click here to see RMACT’s pregnancy rates, as reported to SART (Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology). In addition to our clinical pregnancy rates, RMACT does not exclude patients based on age, hormone levels or other fertility related problems. We welcome all patients, including those who have not been successful elsewhere.

Our Frozen Embryo Transfer Delivery Rates

At RMACT frozen embryo transfer (FET) delivery rates are higher across all age groups compared to the national rates (www.sart.org). Frozen embryo transfer cycles are the future of reproductive medicine based on many advances in the past 10 years.

Egg Freezing Research

Director of Mental Health Services Lisa Schuman’s research regarding egg freezing has been recognized by the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) with award winning papers and her position as Mental Health Professional Group’s Oocyte Cryopreservation Task Force Chair.

State of the Art Embryology Lab

To better meet the needs of all patients, RMACT has moved to a convenient location with a specially designed, state of the art embryology laboratory. The new capabilities at the lab address the many factors (incubators, external elements, testing and screening and more) needed to ensure optimal embryo health.

Top Fertility Doctors

RMACT’s board-certified fertility specialists are extensively trained in reproductive medicine and are eager to help you start or expand your family. They have also been recognized by some of the top medical organizations in the country.
