Reproductive Medicine Associates of New York Proudly Announces New Study Demonstrating >37% Acceleration in Fertility Patient Journey to Parenthood
Reproductive Medicine Associates of New York (RMA of New York), a Manhattan-based fertility center, recently completed a study entitled "Patient Treatment Journeys, Then and Now: 12 Years of Clinical Progress", demonstrating that over the twelve-year period between 2003 and 2014, the time span from patients' first consultation to discharge to their obstetrician markedly declined, dropping from 9.1 months to 5.7 months. RMA of New York physicians and researchers involved in the study attribute advances in clinical expertise and assisted reproductive technologies, such as comprehensive chromosomal screening (CCS) of embryos which enable physicians to identify healthy, chromosomally normal embryos with greater than 98% accuracy. By selecting a single optimal embryo for transfer, physicians can achieve higher success rates while reducing occurrences of miscarriage. Through these groundbreaking techniques, patients were able to achieve successful live birth outcomes more rapidly, with multiple gestation rates diminishing by 50% over the same time frame. The decrease in multiple gestations and increase in healthy singleton pregnancies helped patients return to their obstetricians more quickly than ever before.
