Duke Fertility Center recently was ranked #5 in the U.S., according to Newsweek. This places the Duke fertility team as best in North Carolina and the best in all of the South among an outstanding group of infertility practices.
Rankings were based on a combination of the following:
- Success rates and other key performance indicators published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s national Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) database
- A national survey of 3,000 infertility specialists, ob/gyns and fertility clinic managers
- Relevant national accreditations
The survey asked participants to comment on overall reputation, as well as quality in five categories: diagnosis, treatment, counseling, service and overall nurse staffing.
"This impressive ranking is a testament to our fertility team’s commitment to excellence and dedication to providing the highest quality fertility care to families in our community. Every member of the DFC team — physicians, nursing staff, advanced practice providers, embryologists, lab technicians, psychologists, front desk team members and administrative staff — play an essential role and contributed to this well-deserved recognition," said Matthew D. Barber, MD, MHS, chair of the Duke Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology. "Over 10% of couples face the challenges of infertility. Additionally, 2% of infants born each year are conceived using in vitro fertilization, and the demand continues to grow among individuals of all ages. We are very lucky to be able to offer our patients access to one of the nation’s very best fertility practices."
