Giving You an Advantage over Infertility with IVF Laboratory Procedures


The advanced technology available to you in our IVF lab can effectively remove barriers to getting pregnant—male infertility, maternal age, blocked tubes or recurrent miscarriage, for example.

Tulsa Fertility Center is a leading provider of in vitro fertilization, and our team credits the IVF lab for our ongoing success. Men and women who would otherwise remain infertile now have cutting edge options in advanced reproductive technologies.

The IVF lab is essential to the care you receive at Tulsa Fertility Center. Under the direction of Laboratory Director J. Kevin Thibodeaux and our reproductive endocrinologists, your cycle of in vitro fertilization may include specialized options:

Genetic screening

Couples who are known carriers for genetic diseases benefit from preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) and preimplantation genetic screening (PGS). IVF lab procedures such as PGD enable our embryologists to search for single gene disorders, and select unaffected embryos for transfer during IVF.

Fertility preservation

Women who wish to preserve their fertility, freezing their eggs while they are young, can enlist our IVF lab for help. The vitrification freezing process also brings peace of mind to men and women undergoing cancer treatment. Life-saving radiation and chemotherapy can destroy fertility. Our IVF lab offers cryopreservation (freezing) of sperm, eggs and embryos to protect future fertility after cancer.

Male infertility

Semen analysis provides a blueprint for male fertility services. Our andrology staff expertly intervenes with intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) with IVF. We also specialize in IUI sperm preparation.

In vitro fertilization

The quality and high standards of the IVF lab are essential to embryo development. We specialize in precision, from the temperature in our incubators to the humidity levels in the IVF lab. The reproductive embryologists go to great lengths to optimize embryo development and safety.

Selecting a fertility center with a superior IVF lab on site is critical to IVF success. We provide for our Tulsa area patients top-tier credentials:

  • A PhD laboratory director board certified as a High Complex Laboratory Director (HCLD) and also by the American Academy of Embryology (ACE), and skilled in microsurgical fertilization

  • Federal, state and local certifications and approvals, including industry standard CLIA, CAP and SART certifications

  • A state-of-the-art IVF lab design, including an advanced gas filtering system

Men and women here in Tulsa, and from Fort Smith to Bartlesville, rely on our IVF lab for life-changing results. We take extraordinary measures to provide excellence in lab testing, embryo health and IVF support.
