Inside Our Los Angeles IVF Lab

The heartbeat of reproductive medicine is the IVF lab. The cutting-edge fertility treatments that change lives for our patients — the positive pregnancy tests and happy endings — are possible because of the exacting standards and incredibly skilled IVF laboratory professionals we are fortunate to have in our Los Angeles IVF lab.

Even couples that require only basic fertility testing and treatment benefit from the services of our onsite IVF lab. Your initial fertility workup takes place at our Los Angeles fertility clinic, and the lab results will help your doctor formulate a plan. Should you require the advanced treatment of IVF and the very latest breakthrough lab techniques such as ICSI and egg freezing, our renowned program specializes in these areas.

On the Horizon and Here Today: IVF Research that Contributes to Positive Pregnancies

Our university IVF program, part of the Keck School of Medicine of USC here in Los Angeles, invests in fertility research and attracts the brightest minds in reproductive medicine. We are breaking ground on improvements to fresh cycle IVF, egg freezing and embryo transfer. Read more here about current studies in the USC Fertility IVF lab.
