To learn more about quality metrics, we visited with fertility specialist Courtney Marsh, MD, MPH, at The University of Kansas Health System.

  • SART is is the primary organization of professionals dedicated to the practice of assisted reproductive technologies (ART) in the United States. The organization represents the majority (86%) of ART clinics in the country. The mission of SART is to establish and maintain standards for ART so patients receive the highest possible level of care.

  • We have been a SART member since 1999.

  • Age at time of egg retrieval is the highest predictor for success with ART. Therefore, SART breaks success rates into age categories to provide better information regarding your ART cycle.

  • Multiple gestation means more than 1 fetus at the time of pregnancy (e.g., twins, triplets). Multiple gestation pregnancies have higher risk to the person carrying the pregnancy and to the fetuses.

  • We follow best practice guidelines through SART and the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM). Our providers also stay up to date with the latest research and technology to provide the best care possible.

  • We participate in leading-edge research in multiple collaborative partnerships. We also adhere to the highest standards through all our organizations, including SART, ASRM, College of American Pathologists and Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments.
