International Fertility Patients
Fertile has helped patients from all over the world build families through IVF treatments. Although infertility treatments are now offered by physicians in many cities, few practices have the expertise offered by our center and have the experience of treating IVF patients worldwide. From our lab facility to our personnel, RSMC is equipped to provide the highest quality comprehensive care in reproductive medicine and IVF treatments.
Patients start with either an in-person or telephone consultation with one of our medical profesionals. After a careful review of past medical history and prior treatment cycles, diagnostic tests may be ordered, and an individualized treatment protocol is outlined. All international patients are assigned their own nurse who reviews medication protocols, synchronizes outside monitoring, and facilitates communication among all parties.
IVF treatment requires careful monitoring by serial ultrasound and blood tests. All procedures can be performed at our center in San Diego. If you prefer to shorten your stay in southern California, we can arrange to have the initial testing done at a medical center close to your home. All outside test results are interpreted by one of our physicians. Medications for the IVF cycle can be shipped directly to you from the U.S., or may be obtained locally.
All egg retrieval procedures are performed in our state-of-the-art operating suite by one of our experienced physicians. Anesthesia is provided under the direction of a Board Certified Anesthesiologist. Embryo transfers are performed under ultrasound guidance in a private and relaxing environment.
Given the international diversity of our patient population, we are conscientious that many people may feel more comfortable having their consultations in their native language. Please notify our staff when you are making your appointment if you would like an in-person medically trained interpreter present for your consultation.
RSMC is located in an easily accessible medical/business center, surrounded by malls, hotels and restaurants for your convenience. The RSMC facility is approximately 20 minutes from San Diego International Airport with easy access to all of the incredible amenities and activities offered by the cities of San Diego, Del Mar, and La Jolla.
New patient consultations can be scheduled in person, or for patients living across the globe, by telephone or videoconference. At the time of the initial interview, one of our medical staff will review your past medical and reproductive histories, prior treatment cycles, and laboratory tests. It is helpful to send a copy of medical records prior to the initial consultation. If your medical records are in a different language, please contact our staff to have your records translated into English prior to your appointment. For patients living outside of the area, we can arrange to have diagnostic tests and monitoring studies performed at facilities near your home. After careful review of your complete medical history and diagnostic tests, a treatment plan that is completely individualized for your needs will be outlined for you.
