University Reproductive Associates Has Reopened in Hoboken as of June 1st

Written by:

For some people, family planning involves saving money or moving into a new home. But for the many women and couples dealing with infertility, the term has a whole different meaning. More and more families are welcoming babies into the world thanks to advances in reproductive medicine and help from dedicated doctors. And the first step in the process is finding the right team of fertility specialists to fully evaluate your situation and create a customized treatment plan to help you achieve your family-building goals. University Reproductive Associates {URA} recently reopened its Hoboken office located at 79 Hudson Street, conveniently located to all transportation and one block from the PATH trains. The team helps patients overcome infertility through the use of treatments such as intrauterine insemination {IUI}, in vitro fertilization {IVF}, egg freezing, reproductive surgery, third-party reproduction, and more. The practice is now also offering free telemedicine fertility consultations for new patients who don’t have insurance coverage. Learn more about the URA Hoboken fertility specialists below.

An Experienced Fertility Practice

The award-winning team of physicians and scientists at University Reproductive Associates have over a century of combined fertility experience in helping patients achieve successful pregnancies. Unlike many fertility clinics that quickly place every patient on a track towards IVF, the URA physicians provide a completely customized treatment plan based on the unique needs of each patient. In fact, more than half of URA’s pregnancies are achieved through treatments other than IVF. Ultimately, the goal is to help each person and couple complete their journey towards a healthy and successful pregnancy. URA offers a wide variety of treatment options, and their team has extensive experience helping LGBTQ couples build their families. Dr. Susan Wolf, one of URA’s Hoboken physicians, told us, “URA is committed to helping same-sex couples become families. This is something we feel very passionate about.”

URA utilizes advanced, state-of-the-art diagnostic testing, procedures, and treatment options. It was the first — and remains the only — clinic in New Jersey to feature LifeAire® — a premium air purification system that increases the successful implantation and pregnancy rates during in vitro fertilization procedures. It also effectively destroys all COVID-19 viral particles, creating a COVID-free environment for embryos. In addition, the office uses Trophon® disinfection machines in every exam room, which is the gold standard for complete disinfection of ultrasound probes.

.

“Many patients who have been to other fertility clinics will see the Trophon and ask what it is,” says Nursing Supervisor Michele Gambro. “This is a great opportunity for us to explain to our patients the potential of infectious disease transmission via ultrasound probes and how using the Trophon system helps reduce this risk substantially.”

Dr. Peter McGovern, Medical Director for University Reproductive Associates, has implemented policies and procedures that reflect his belief that patient safety is the most important aspect of care. “Having the peace of mind that patients are safe, and our infection control procedures are impeccable is worth the extra two minutes it takes to disinfect with the Trophon machine.”

A Dedicated Team for All Treatments

As a patient at URA, you will have many interactions with the nursing staff, as they assist physicians and help guide you through the testing and treatment process. They are there for you every step of the way, explaining in detail exactly what your next steps are and facilitating all aspects of your care, from ordering medications and preparing you for an upcoming treatment cycle to teaching an injection class on the proper use of the fertility medications. 

Patients also work with skilled patient care coordinators who guide you through your journey by providing information, counseling, and support. The patient care coordinators ensure completion of your cycle requirements and act as a liaison between you and the medical staff. 

URA has in-house laboratories with skilled technicians so they can provide full-service fertility care. For male patients, the andrology lab contains a private production room for men to provide specimens for analysis, and the andrology staff is dedicated to helping run all the tests needed so the physicians can get results quickly and make important decisions regarding next steps.  

The experienced embryology staff is responsible for creating and maintaining embryos in the laboratory — a critical component of any fertility practice. They perform the inseminations during IVF and monitor embryo development closely until the day the physician performs the embryo transfer. They also perform embryo biopsies for preimplantation genetic testing. If you are going through an IVF cycle, the embryology staff provides you with regular updates on the status of your embryos and will speak to you on the day of your embryo transfer to discuss the embryo or embryos being placed back into the uterus. 

The treatment options available at URA include:

  • – In Vitro Fertilization {IVF}
  • – Intrauterine insemination {IUI}
  • – Egg freezing/fertility preservation
  • – Third-party reproduction {donor eggs, donor sperm, gestational carrier}
  • – Reproductive surgery

The conditions treated by the URA physicians include:

  • – Infertility
  • – Recurrent pregnancy loss
  • – Polycystic Ovary Syndrome {PCOS}
  • – Endometriosis
  • – Fibroids

Certain medical conditions – especially those that can interfere with the normal menstrual cycle – can contribute to infertility and may be the only factor standing between a patient and a successful pregnancy. Management of medical issues such as thyroid disease, diabetes, hyperprolactinemia, uterine fibroids, and polyps are commonly treated by the doctors and staff at URA. 

A Unique Approach to Fertility

The URA team told us that listening to and educating patients is their top priority when working with a new patient. This helps provide a complete picture of the situation so they can help each person or family meet their goals. 

URA has an affiliation with Rutgers New Jersey Medical School as well as with Hackensack University Medical Center. These relationships provide unique opportunities for patients to participate in a variety of clinical research studies. URA is one of a handful of medical centers around the country selected to train the next generation of infertility specialists.  The Rutgers Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility Program achieves much of its clinical exposure at URA, where the REI Fellows assist in patient surgeries and support groundbreaking clinical research studies carried on at URA.  As part of the affiliation, all of URA research studies are approved by the Rutgers Institutional Review Board to ensure patients’ safety and privacy.
