"They say it takes a village to raise a child," said Patty Stull, Executive Director at Shady Grove Fertility Center. "When it comes to battling infertility, it takes a village of dedicated patients, compassionate employees, supportive OB/GYN physicians and trusted colleagues to help bring 27,000 babies into the world. What sets us apart is that we are committed to making fertility treatment more accessible by providing individualized patient care and innovative financial programs."
Due to advancements in the field of fertility, there are now treatments to help almost everyone conceive, including a range of low-tech and high-tech options such as Clomid, intrauterine insemination (IUI), in vitro fertilization (IVF), and donor egg. These treatments are very effective in overcoming most diagnoses such as annovulation, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), blocked fallopian tubes, unexplained infertility, recurrent miscarriages or male factor infertility, to name only a few.
