June 19, 2014 (Chicago, IL) – World experts in the diagnosis and treatment of infertility will convene at the ninth annual Midwest Reproductive Symposium hosted by Fertility Centers of Illinois on June 19-21 in Chicago, IL.

Global thought leaders in the scientific and clinical infertility arena will present their latest landmark research and discuss advancements, techniques, and treatment modalities in the field of reproductive medicine.

“We are proud to host world-renowned leaders in the field of reproductive medicine in the joint mission of helping people become parents, “says Dr. Angeline Beltsos, medical director of Fertility Centers of Illinois and MRS chairperson. “We will discuss and analyze the latest laboratory and treatment techniques used to overcome infertility challenges.”

The symposium will analyze multiple facets of in vitro fertilization including stimulation of the ovaries, egg retrieval, embryo cryopreservation, and frozen and fresh embryo transfers. For patients who do not conceive with in vitro fertilization treatment, techniques and treatment breakthroughs will be discussed. Global thought leaders will also share their research and studies on ovarian reserve, egg (oocyte) development, and the uterine surface where an embryo attaches to the womb.

Other topics to be discussed are surgical treatments in the female fertility patient, testing ovarian reserve, embryo biopsy techniques for genetic evaluation, embryo time lapse imaging, and recurrent pregnancy loss.
