About Shady Grove Fertility
When co-founders, Michael J. Levy, M.D., and Arthur W. Sagoskin, M.D., established Shady Grove Fertility more than 30 years ago, they had no idea that the practice would rise to national and international prominence as a Center of Excellence in the field of reproductive medicine, IVF, and infertility. The goal of the new practice was simple—to provide cutting-edge fertility care in an environment that supported patients’ physical, emotional, and financial needs—and to make future business and clinical decisions based on what is in the best interest of the patients.
By focusing on improving patients’ overall experience and pregnancy outcomes, Shady Grove Fertility found itself aligned with an ongoing commitment to excellence. Initially, ensuring a positive experience and engaging in a quest to raise the bar of success for patients meant hiring the best of the best—from physicians and laboratory directors to nurses, social workers, and other health care professionals. It meant incorporating the latest medical technologies, investing in top of the line equipment and medical facilities, and continually finding ways to make treatment more affordable and accessible through guarantee programs such as the Shared Risk 100% Refund Program for IVF, egg donor treatment, donor embryo treatment, and egg freezing. 82% of participants using IVF with autologous eggs take home a baby, and 85% of patients using a donor egg take home a baby.
