IRMS utilizes collaboration, compassion to help patients build the family of their dreams – Jersey’s Best

According to theU.S. Department of Health & Human Services, 10% to 15% of couples who want to have children will have difficulty becoming pregnant, a reality which can cause heartache, strain relationships, and generate negative social stigma. But thanks to their extensive experience, knowledge of the latest advancements in the field of reproductive medicine, and creation of a safe, compassionate, and trusting environment, the doctors at the New Jersey-based Institute for Reproductive Medicine and Science (IRMS) are empowering their patients and helping them to build the family of their dreams.

Affiliated with theRWJBarnabas Healthand offering sevenconvenient locations throughout the state (Clark, East Windsor, Hoboken, Jersey City, Livingston, Old Bridge and Teaneck), the practices eight female doctors, all of whom have amassed decades of experience in the field, provide patients with a range of state-of-the-art fertility consultation, guidance and treatment. We treat infertility and endocrine disorders associated with reproduction, such as polycystic ovary syndrome, and help patients better understand their menstrual cycle, said Debbra A. Keegan, MD, the practices chief clinical strategist.

Among the many fertility services offered at IRMS are intrauterine insemination (IUI), ovulation induction, intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), and in vitro fertilization (IVF), a process by which the female ovaries are stimulated with hormones to enhance the development of a viable egg. We can also provide elective egg freezing for women dealing with a disease or treatment that might render them infertile a process known as fertility preservation as well as preimplantation genetic testing (PGT) to determine if an embryo is chromosomally normal, Dr. Keegan said. The practices many other services includesingle embryo transfer (SET),gestational surrogacy,LGBTQ family buildingandreproductive support,egg and sperm donationandgenetic counseling.

Achieving the Dream

From heterosexual couples to same-sex couples, single individuals, and more, Dr. Keegan said that the demand for IRMS services and expertise have never been greater. Thanks to the evolution of our culture, the influence of social media, greater tolerance, and enhanced access, society has increasingly grown to accept that people are different but that everyone has a right to have a family, she said. The joy is in helping these patients achieve their dream.

According to Dr. Keegan, the camaraderie and collaborative relationship between the eight doctors at IRMS sets their practice apart from others. In addition to being board-certified reproductive endocrinologists, were all moms, daughters and sisters ourselves and what draws us together makes us unique, she said. We acknowledge the difficulty of becoming a family and provide a compassionate and safe place for people who are experiencing stress in building their families. We treat people with dignity and dont practice cookie-cutter medicine; rather, we advocate for our patients, individualize every treatment plan, and bring the best of science to help each patient achieve their goal.

In a society that can stigmatize those with infertility issues or those who may represent a deviation from normal, we go out of our way to help patients feel comfortable and understood and try to help educate them during the process as well, Dr. Keegan said. With pregnancy success rates that compare to all of the top fertility programs in the country, IRMS has one of the most experienced teams of doctors, nurses, and embryologists in the country and the world and is dedicated to bringing the best outcome for each and every patient.

Having positively touched thousands of lives in their practice, Dr. Keegan couldnt be prouder of IRMS mission or her colleagues Top Doctor status. Were honored and humbled to be recognized by our peers for the care we provide to our patients and hope that our practice continues to remove the stigma often associated with fertility treatment by providing a warm, compassionate and understanding approach that recognizes individuality in reproductive potential, she said. Its all about building families and helping each patient realize their dream.
