Austin IVF – Ovation Fertility pioneered early IVF lab advances and continues to lead the way

Ovation® Fertility Austin serves as the premier source for embryology and andrology laboratory services in Central Texas. Our Austin IVF lab was established when in vitro fertilization was first introduced in this country. Its founder and lab director at the time are credited with one of the first GIFT procedures to take place in the U.S.

Over the past two decades, the foundational and advanced reproductive technologies (ART) performed and perfected at Ovation Fertility Austin include:

  • Intracytoplasmic sperm injection, ICSI
  • Trophectoderm biopsy
  • Time-lapse embryo monitoring and assessment
  •  Vitrification of eggs, sperm and embryos

The people of Ovation Fertility Austin are key to its model for success. Having access to the leading scientists in the country, positioning them to share research and best practice approaches, enables us to advance the field of reproductive medicine for potential parents today and for the next generation.
