David Diaz, MD, CEO of West Coast Fertility Centers has always been on the scientific forefront of finding real solutions for real human needs because he understands that unanticipated life events can threaten a woman’s reproduction. Cancer at a young age, career demands, single marital status, or a depleted ovarian function can all endanger a woman’s fertility potential.
Since 2000, our medical and scientific team have been refining the art of freezing and thawing a woman’s unfertilized egg for fertilization and implantation at a later date. In the hands of experienced practitioners who practice the art of egg freezing, the success rate in the favorable patient age group approximates those of a fresh IVF cycle. Egg freezing and thawing should be left to veteran experts who perform it frequently and practice it well.
“The World’s First Frozen Egg Baby Reunion” honoring the parents and children conceived from frozen eggs was held on October 15, 2011. Nearly 70 joyous families and their frozen egg babies came together to celebrate life.
