Local Fertility Pioneers Join Forces and Expertise
AUGUSTA, Ga., Aug. 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Drs. Edouard J. Servy and Joe B. Massey announce the opening of the Servy Massey Fertility Institute (SMFI), designed to provide high tech fertility care at affordable prices. They have offices in Augusta and Atlanta, Georgia, working in collaboration with the Georgia Health Sciences University (formerly known as Medical College of Georgia or MCG).
The reduced cost announced offers the first in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycle for $6,575 - as much as a 50 percent discount compared with the national average. It includes blood work, ultrasounds, egg retrieval, embryo transfer and micro manipulation (intra cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) and assisted hatching) when necessary. Patients requiring additional cycles will receive an even greater discount.
Both Drs. Massey and Servy are pioneers in reproductive endocrinology and the treatment of infertility. In 1983, Dr. Massey co-founded Reproductive Biology Associates in Atlanta, GA. The clinic team led many advances in IVF, including the first ICSI and first egg freezing pregnancies in the US and the first assisted hatching procedure in the world.
After completing his medical training at MCG, Dr. Servy established a private practice in Augusta, GA. He is responsible for the first human intrauterine insemination (IUI) in the world in 1978, the first embryo transfer at day 5 blastocyst stage in the US, and the first live birth after blastocyst cryopreservation following ICSI in the world.
Drs. Massey and Servy are now working together to provide a new solution for hopeful parents-to-be. In the past, the high cost of fertility treatment has been a barrier for many couples. SMFI was founded on the idea that infertility treatment should be more accessible to all. The institute's unique low cost program provides affordable treatment to hopeful couples, in a quality setting with proven results.
