We were in San Diego last week, along with 6,000 fertility specialists, nurses and scientists, for the American Society for Reproductive Medicine’s annual meeting ~ ASRM 2012. Texas Fertility Center sent Drs. Kaylen Silverberg and Natalie Burger; Tom, Kristin, and Hank from the TFC lab; Third Party Reproductive Coordinator Leanne; Director of Clinical Operations Kathy Reynolds, LVN; and Ashley, one of our IVF coordinators.
What does that mean for you, back home in the Austin, Round Rock or San Antonio areas?
TFC doctors, nurses and clinicians are learning
Every new day brings potential game-changing developments in reproductive medicine that could help solve your infertility puzzle. We’ve heard from colleagues, while in San Diego, about breakthroughs in assisted reproductive technology clinical and laboratory techniques, as well as the latest findings related to fertility preservation, non-invasive embryo assessment, and reproductive genetics.
TFC doctors, nurses and clinicians are teaching
In addition to learning from other experts, our TFC doctors shared research that we have performed in our practice in oral and “poster” presentations. We also led round tables and seminars, and are working on new research studies with our industry partners. In addition to IVF, we also shared our experiences with laparoscopic and robotic surgery and the life-changing difference they can have for women suffering from endometriosis, uterine fibroids, tubal disease and pelvic adhesions.
Anyone who travels for business knows that taking time away from the office requires great effort, but there is no substitution for the power of collaboration. Orchestral conductor Itay Talgam says: “[A conductor’s] happiness does not come from only his own story and his joy of the music. The joy is about enabling other people’s stories to be heard at the same time.”
On your next visit to Texas Fertility Center, ask us about the meaningful discoveries and collaborative “music” we make together as an American Society for Reproductive Medicine, and the joy we derive from solving infertility.
