About the Sher Institutes for Reproductive Medicine(R) (SIRM(R)):

The Sher Institutes for Reproductive Medicine comprise a national network of fertility clinics specializing in cutting-edge technology, personalized treatment and compassionate care. SIRM Founder Dr. Geoffrey Sher established the first private In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) program in the United States. Dr. Sher and his colleagues have been influential in the development of dozens of important breakthroughs in the field of reproductive care. Most recently, Sher Institute pioneered a new genetic test, Comparative Genomic Hybridization (CGH), which assesses all chromosomes in an egg or embryo, improving the birth rate per embryo transferred by a factor of at least 3 and at the same time dramatically reduces the risk of miscarriage and birth defects. This technology represents a paradigm shift in the field and brings closer the goal of a single embryo transfer. SIRM has been responsible for more than 100 births resulting from CGH-selected embryos
