The Maimonides Program Is Cited Among Best in the Nation
BROOKLYN, NY (January 14, 2010)
GENESIS Fertility & Reproductive Medicine, the program for infertility and assisted reproduction at Maimonides Medical Center, has been named one of America's "Centers of Excellence" in the field of infertility by Contemporary OB/GYN, a peer-reviewed journal for practicing obstetrician/gynecologists. GENESIS is listed among the most elite fertility centers in the nation, including The Cleveland Clinic, Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston and the Yale Fertility Center.
"We are certainly pleased that our colleagues have included us in the same category of excellence as some of the best known reproductive medicine centers in the country," said David Seifer, MD, co-director of GENESIS and scientific director of the Division of Reproductive Endocrinology at Maimonides. "Of course, our patients' satisfaction is, by far, our most important measure of success."
GENESIS offers the full range of services for couples with infertility - from the simplest treatment options to the most advanced, including in vitro fertilization (IVF), intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) and pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) - in a single setting. It has consistently produced pregnancy rates that are well above national rates, while keeping high order multiple rates significantly below national levels.
"We believe this recognition reflects the exceptional care and outstanding results we deliver for our patients," added Richard Grazi, MD, co-director of GENESIS and director of the Division of Reproductive Endocrinology at Maimonides. "Our team of talented and highly caring professionals provides comprehensive services to couples with infertility, tailored very specifically to their needs."
The infertility centers highlighted as Centers of Excellence in a recent issue of Contemporary OB/GYN are "programs offering comprehensive infertility testing, diagnosis, and treatment complemented by participation in evolving infertility and genetic research arenas." They were selected based on a survey of the journal's readers: more than 40,000 obstetrician/gynecologists from across the country. Each center provided patient statistics, research protocols, funding information, areas of concentration and detailed information on services offered.
GENESIS Fertility & Reproductive Medicine has offices at 1355 84th Street in Brooklyn and 1855 Richmond Avenue in Staten Island. For more information about the services at GENESIS, please call (718) 283-8600 or log-on to the site.
