Palm Beach Fertility Center Adds INVOCELL®, An Innovative Option Used in Fertility Treatment, to its Reproductive Health Services

Palm Beach Fertility Center expands fertility options and helps improve access to care with the addition of the INVOCELL lntravaginal Culture (IVC) System.

The INVOCELL IVC System is a cost-conscious option that uses a woman's own body as an incubator during fertilization and early embryo development.

Palm Beach Fertility Center is the first center in the state of Florida to offer the INVOCELL lntravaginal Culture (IVC) System as part of its scope of reproductive health services . The INVOCELL IVC System, the first-of-its-kind , which comprises the INVOCELL Culture Device and Retention Device, 1 is the only IVC system cleared by the Food and Drug Administration.

"We are pleased to add INVOCELL to our current reproductive health offering as an innovative option for patients struggling with infertility," said Dr. Mark Denker. "Statistics show that over 1.4 million women in the United States may benefit from advanced fertility treatment, yet only an estimated 130,000 of them begin such treatment.2 As a cost-conscious option, we believe that INVOCELL will help us improve access to care for those hoping to be parents. We are excited to report we have already achieved 3 pregnancies via INVOCELL."

INVOCELL

is a patented medical device used in the treatment of infertility that enables egg fertilization and early embryo development to take place in a woman's body. The eggs are retrieved from a woman's ovaries and placed in the INVOCELL system with sperm. INVOCELL is then placed in the woman's body to allow fertilization and incubation to occur, making the patient an even greater part of the process. To learn more, visit www.INVOCELL.com.
