A Shady Grove Fertility Baby is Born Every 3 Hours

(Rockville, MD – July 27, 2011) – In the last 20 years, over 27,000 babies were born as a result of Shady Grove Fertility Center.  When the center opened its doors in 1991, approximately one baby was born every 20 days.  Today, one Shady Grove Fertility baby is born approximately every 3 hours

Shady Grove Fertility Center is celebrating its 20th Anniversary with the launch of the website www.JoyforGenerations.com.  The website is a place for past, present and future fertility patients, staff members, referring physicians and practice partners to read or share inspirational stories and images about their experience with Shady Grove Fertility.  

In addition to reading stories from the Shady Grove Fertility community, visitors to the site can click on a historical timeline of the Practice, view educational and inspirational videos, connect to Shady Grove Fertility’s social networks and schedule new patient appointments.

The Shady Grove Fertility Practice began in 1991 in Rockville, MD with two reproductive endocrinologists, Dr. Arthur Sagoskin and Dr. Michael Levy.  Today, the Practice has 23 physicians and 13 full service offices in Maryland, Washington, DC and Virginia and also welcomes patients from around the country and internationally from countries such as the United Kingdom, Canada and Ireland.

“They say it takes a village to raise a child,” said Patty Stull, Executive Director at Shady Grove Fertility Center.  “When it comes to battling infertility, it takes a village of dedicated patients, compassionate employees, supportive OB/GYN physicians and trusted colleagues to help bring 27,000 babies into the world.  What sets us apart is that we are committed to making fertility treatment more accessible by providing individualized patient care and innovative financial programs.”

Due to advancements in the field of fertility, there are now treatments to help almost everyone conceive, including a range of low-tech and high-tech options such as Clomid, intrauterine insemination (IUI), in vitro fertilization (IVF), and donor egg.  These treatments are very effective in overcoming most diagnoses such as annovulation, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), blocked fallopian tubes, unexplained infertility, recurrent miscarriages or male factor infertility, to name only a few.
