Abington, Bethlehem, Chalfont, Langhorne, Lansdale, Lancaster, King of Prussia and Wilkes-Barre.

Their groundbreaking techniques and programs include Da Vinci Robotic surgery (to remove uterine fibroids and tubal ligation reversals), they offer an innovative approach to IVF care by having live harp music play during the IVF transfer, an Egg Donor Program, for women with absent or non-functioning ovaries, cancer, advanced maternal age, a history of genetic abnormalities or premature ovarian failure; Autologous Endometrial Coculture, which involves placing the female patient’s fertilized eggs on top of a layer of cells from her own uterine lining, creating a more natural environment for embryo development and maximizing the chance of conception; traditional surrogacy and gestational carrier (i.e. a woman who carries a fetus for another couple).  This is also one of the only fertility centers with an on-staff, fellowship-trained reproductive urologist specializing in male infertility.

To bring these innovative techniques to their patients, Abington Reproductive Medicine physicians conduct advanced research studies and clinical trials, many of which have been presented at annual meetings of the American Society of Reproductive Medicine.   For more information or to schedule a consultation at any of the locations, please visit the website at: or call 215-887-2010.
