The desire to have a child is universal, but sometimes conceiving can be difficult due to biological, physiological, emotional, or other reasons. The goal of the Lis Fertility Institute is to help people who wish to be parents achieve pregnancy.

The Fertility Institute offers medicine's most advanced services, evaluations and treatments for fertility problems, with departments that cover:

  • In vitro fertilization (IVF): The broad range of best practice fertility services treats infertility, hormonal imbalances, reproductive organ structure issues, decreased sperm quality, and unexplained infertility. IVF and assisted reproductive therapy treatments include: ovulation induction, intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI)/micromanipulation, embryo cryopreservation, testicular biopsies, pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD), and fertility counseling.
  • IVF laboratory services: The IVF lab supports fertility by performing egg fertilization, embryo incubation, cryopreservation, and PGD. The laboratory also performs research and development on embryonic stem cells to advance clinical and scientific understanding and to develop pioneering medical solutions.
  • Male fertility: Forty to 50% of infertility in couples is due to male-related factors. The Fertility Institute conducts testing and evaluations to determine whether infertility is due to the man's "part of the equation" and provides treatment to help resolve these issues.
  • Sperm banking: The sperm bank helps women and couples achieve pregnancy through sperm donation and implantation. The facility performs sperm testing, prepares sperm for insemination, and conducts male genetic and biological tests with the goal of promoting fertility.
  • Fertility preservation: For women of reproductive age with cancer who undergoing chemotherapy or radiotherapy, preserving fertility may be the only way to conceive a biological child at a later time. The Fertility Institute offers three preservation services: freezing eggs, cryopreserving embryos or freezing ovaries that contain eggs.
  • Egg donation for in vitro fertilization: This service is designed for women who have had recurrent pregnancy loss or women who cannot produce quality oocytes due to medical conditions, such as early ovarian failure or an autoimmune disease. In addition, women with genetic diseases that could prevent the birth of a healthy child and women who have undergone chemotherapy or radiation therapy can also benefit from donated eggs.
