We want to reassure our patients that we have never used and do not currently use the recently recalled Fujifilm Irvine Scientific oil products to culture embryos. We maintain our commitment to providing the highest quality lab environment for our IVF patients. The recall demonstrates that, as with many medical treatments, problems can arise despite the best efforts of a medical practice. While we cannot predict the future to know if a different manufacturer that we use would ever need to recall an IVF lab product, we can promise our patients full transparency if something like that were to occur so they can be informed on the various factors that may or may not have affected their embryo culture. This is important in helping couples who have had poor IVF outcomes make more informed decisions on if they should try IVF again.
TRM celebrated ten years of helping more than 10,000 patients through fertility treatment with a family-friendly party at the Tennessee RiverPlace on October 21, 2018. WRCB Channel 3 came to the celebration and spoke with our doctors and patients.
