Benefits of collaborative medicine
Collaborative medicine is partially responsible for the extraordinary results in our laboratory. For nearly 20 years, we have solved complex infertility challenges by working with a nationwide cooperative of embryologists, andrologists, geneticists and reproductive endocrinologists who offer ongoing research and support.
Our utilization of collaborative medicine also contributes to our advances in genetic testing, which has enhanced our ability to provide solutions that support patients. In addition, collaborative medicine has enabled us to employ the latest freezing techniques in the Ovation Nashville lab. It also allows us to offer comprehensive chromosome screening using Next Generation Screening.
We’re honored that our leading-edge lab services give the patients at our Nashville fertility clinic such a high caliber of care. Contact us to learn more about Ovation Nashville.
