We have seen many patients who would like to undergo in-vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment, but the time and financial requirements of the procedure can be prohibitive. With the development of the new INVOcell device, we are able to greatly reduce the cost of treatment by virtually eliminating all lab costs. The INVOcell device is a new product that allows the incubation period of IVF treatment to take place inside the prospective mother, rather than in a lab. We are now offering effortless IVF treatment with the INVOcell device at our Dallas area fertility treatment office. If you have been considering fertility treatments but have held back because of financial constraints, please click on the New Patient Registration link above to make an effortless IVF appointment.
The INVOcell Device
An INVOcell is a cylindrical device made from plastic that is about 4 cm long and 3 cm in diameter. To protect it from bacteria, the small capsule consists of two concentric chambers. It is designed to replace the need for incubators in a traditional IVF treatment cycle. In traditional IVF, the woman's eggs are harvested and fertilized in a laboratory and incubated for five days before being transferred to the patient's uterus. With INVOcell and effortless IVF, the eggs and sperm are placed in the inner chamber of the capsule. The capsule is then inserted into the vagina for the incubation period. This allows us to bypass the traditionally expensive IVF incubators and use the woman's own body to provide the necessary conditions of temperature, pH balance, and oxygen ratios that will encourage fertilization and embryo growth. After the five-day incubation period, the INVOcell device is removed, and the healthiest embryo is transferred to the uterus.
