Succeeding the CHA Medical Center’s Traditions and Possessing World’s Best Fertility Treatment Technologies
Based on the traditions of the CHA Medical Center and its technological prowess in fertility treatment, the Fertility Center at CBMC is renowned for its outstanding treatment performance in the fields of fertility and genetics. The Center is now expanding the presence across the world, reaching out to infertile couples in L.A., Japan, China and Vietnam. Tapping into the CHA Medical Center’s accumulated know-how and a wealth of clinical experience combined with its cutting-edge technologies, the Center helps couples achieve their dream of having a child.

Achieved 58.1% Success Rate of the Frozen Embryo Transfer
The team has recorded approximately 60% success rate of the frozen embryo transfer for the recent 3 years. The frozen embryo transfer is a procedure to thaw cryopreserved embryos and implant into the uterus without going through In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), which involves ovarian stimulation injection. The staff can apply this procedure to the following two cases. First, after performing IVF in the fresh IVF cycle, any remaining embryos can be frozen for the next implant cycle. Second, if the patient shows the ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome, and has elevated levels of progesterone and follicle stimulating hormone in the IVF procedure, the frozen embryo is transferred. The Center has maintained high success rates of this procedure: 58.1%
Treat the Causes of Male Infertility and Apply Various Sperm Preparation Techniques to Get Healthy Sperm
There are various causes for infertility. Male infertility accounts for as much as 40% of infertility. The causes for male infertility include “the varicocele” in the scrotum that may prevent normal cooling of the testicle, leading to reduced sperm count, “the sperm transport disorder” where tubes inside the male reproductive organs such as epididymis or ductus deferens are blocked to impede the transport of normal sperm, and inflammation of the prostate or urethra. The specialist treats such causes using medication, laparoscopic or robotic surgery before starting a fertility treatment. In the case of substandard sperm, a sperm preparation technique is employed to get high-quality sperm, combined with the flotation technique which is applied to normal sperm to increase the success rate.
Specialized Medical and Research Teams Dedicated to Fertility Treatments
The Center has distinguished faculty members and a separate laboratory that is devoted to fertility treatments and research efforts. In the laboratory, the team performs a series of clinical work inducing pregnancy and related clinical and basic research. Among the main tasks are the harvest, maturation and fertilization of egg, in vitro culture of embryos, freezing of eggs or embryos, cryopreservation and examination (shape and functions) of sperm, fertilization of sperm or spermatids through micromanipulation, assisted hatching and preimplantation genetic screening.
In addition, to address unresolved causes for male and female infertility, members of the Center are dedicated to research on the maturation of immature eggs in the ovaries, developing new techniques of cryopreservation, establishing cultivation techniques to produce high quality embryos, in vitro cultivation of eggs and sperm, using state-of-the-art technologies.
