Hello welcome to -- welcome Dr.
-- infertility affects millions of people every year.
Turning to in vitro fertilization can give you the family you want but the process can be confusing and complicated to understand -- He had to give us a check list of what you need to know about -- and his doctor Richard Scott.
From reproductive medicine associates of New Jersey and by the way a friend and by the way one of the -- IVF doctors in the country.
And I'm glad -- here because -- a lot of questions.
In regards to IVF.
That acknowledges changing the offers are different so give me the biggest -- Right now in the idea.
The single greatest myth is that IDF results in higher order multiple pregnancies -- and quads.
Good programs today don't see any triplets -- Us and many many fewer twins and so we get patients pregnant much more quickly was much less for us and we almost always get good outcomes.
So you know again all the stories though we do Leo Fox's -- -- lady -- -- nine babies and that's really not the norm.
Not not anymore it would be really never -- but triples and quads were part of this story for for many decades within this field but today we've all but eliminate.
And so it's possible to really shoot for that.
That's pregnancy -- good outcomes but really signaled it's a game a more I'm all about quality and I think that you know.
Medical marketing is -- people market -- put ads -- -- this and the other people really don't know what should people look in their markets.
You know what as some criteria that they need to do.
In regards to via the facility.
That the most important thing to look at the facility is the safety of the care they provide and I would measure that fundamentally in two ways to they have -- -- are they getting patients pregnant.
And are they avoiding multiples are they.
Putting patients at low risk you can measure that and once simple way are they putting -- fewer embryos back in every patient.
If you don't put back more than two you're almost never gonna do worse than twins that safety that ultimately determines the health of the children what should people look -- their doctor.
They want their doctor to be reproductive endocrinologist.
And they want to surround themselves with a great team that you could tell folks what that is what's at reproductive -- and -- crowd so.
Perhaps for reproductive endocrinologist is an OB GY and he's done three additional years of sub specialty training to learn how to care for a variety of disorders but mainly infertility.
They should have a strong background in both the -- side and the scientific side.
-- infertility and in particular in vitro fertilization.
Should US a doctor.
It's so the most important questions to ask your doctor are how long should I expect to be intrigued.
The average patient today from the first time we seem to their pardons less than five months this is quick there's no reason to waste time or energy.
Second how many embryos do you have to transfer I know I mention that with.
Really does this -- done so well today that we can focus much more effectively on care that is safe and produces good outcomes.
99% of the complications -- treatment.
Relate to multiple gestation if we can eliminate those we get better outcomes so if you need to ask your doctor how many embryos would you put back in me and that number should one -- -- When it comes to.
It's always an issue with -- because from the -- but now I see more -- more.
Let's say insurance companies are pain for idea services told me about the finances in the field.
IDF cost the same -- did in 1993.
When I first -- -- And so the reality is is that costs have been stable but it's still expensive.
Dollars because there's there's many components to right that's right because -- practice like -- -- -- thirteen doctors has 250 employees that's where the money that's right and so the reality is it's it's important to be cost to look at cost.
And make sure that it's not -- -- programs that are excessively expensive -- necessary.
And programs that are that kind of -- bargain basement usually don't have the facilities provide quality care.
If -- somewhere in the middle you wanna be somewhere in the middle and that's going to be in that 89101000 dollar.
Now let's get a little bit of science into the discussion here.
Tell me a little bit about some of the new technologies that -- you using in your specific center.
To enhance success.
And I'm leaning your tours let's say pre implantation genetic -- -- you guys call it something else nominated at.
Told me about what's making -- some of that data you have viewed your centers school are -- -- over the tristate area.
You have one of the highest success rates four in vitro but give me the science behind the.
Average human embryo would most of our patients actually has the wrong number promise it's they're not 46 like you and high -- and the pace themselves and so.
Those embryos in fact look the same in the ditch so when we look at a dish we look at him rose from 45 girls of 25 -- they look the same.
Eight or nine out of ten of those in the older patient are going to be abnormal -- -- matter genetic material.
We can now measure that we can measure that in four hours used to take -- months.
And so that means that we can grow those patients embryos out what's safe to evaluate that's five or six days outside the body.
Take -- selling tested in a matter of hours know whether that embryo is going to be sick.
We can take patients by doing that comprehensive promise almost -- type of PGD.
That we can take a patient is 434445.
Maker Down syndrome is less -- a -- since she was 21.
And double or triple her pregnancy rates in single -- ten.
All right listen a great information.
American people some get some information.
Easiest thing to do is just go to our website WW WR NA NGA dot com.
Well listen great information.
Doctor Scott as I said it does this not only -- friend but one of the leaders of reproductive sciences in the world.
And he has built an incredible.
And I thank you for being here thank you very much all right.
I did you have any health question as you can email me Arafat said -- -- -- foxnews.com I'm not that many thanks for watch.
