SART Membership: Dr. Mark Denker

SART is the primary organization of professionals dedicated to the practice of assisted reproductive technologies (ART- IVF) in the United States. Up to 85% of the ART centers in the country are improved SART clinics. SART’s mission is to set and help maintain the standards for ART in the United States.

Major functions of SART include:

  • Yearly data collection of IVF outcomes from its member clinics
  • Close association with the Centers for Disease Control to accurately report IVF outcomes
  • Sets practice guidelines and standards and interact with the federal government by acting as an overseer of ART in this country
  • Ensure quality assurance for fertility clinics in the United States

Palm Beach Fertility Center is a SART member clinic, in good standing, and we not only follow the requirement of submitting yearly IVF statistics but also of maintain required JACHO accreditation of our laboratory.

Palm Beach Fertility follows all SART practice guidelines such as:

  • Guidelines for gamete and embryo donation
  • Guidelines on the number of embryos transferred
  • Guidelines for human embryology and andrology laboratories
  • Minimum standards for practices offering assisted reproductive technologies

Standards like these have led to a marked decline in high-order multiple pregnancies, the appropriate use of preimplantation genetic testing, and the promotion of elective single-embryo transfer. SART also holds all its members to strict standards regarding “truth in advertising” to better serve the public.
