Ovation Fertility San Antonio: World-Class Fertility Care in South Texas.

Ovation® Fertility San Antonio opened its doors to bring greater access to leading-edge fertility services to physicians and patients in San Antonio and the surrounding communities of San Marcos, Houston and the Texas Valley. Our laboratories operate under the direction of Matthew “Tex” VerMilyea, PhD, one of the world’s foremost embryologists, and offer a comprehensive listing of state-of-the-art andrology, embryology and fertility preservation services.

You’ll find our San Antonio IVF laboratories at 18707 Hardy Oak Blvd., Suite 511, across the street from Methodist Stone Oak Hospital in north central San Antonio.

Deconstructing our IVF Laboratory Design

Ovation Fertility San Antonio is a new facility, built from the ground up, to adhere to evidence-based standards for world-class IVF laboratories. Internationally recognized fertility specialists, in conjunction with our own scientific directors, contributed to the design and layout of our state-of-the-art IVF lab. We insisted on outfitting our facility with the design, equipment and materials that have been proven over time to generate optimal outcomes for our IVF patients.

In our San Antonio IVF lab, you can expect to find meticulous attention to detail and a Super Clean room to grow and protect your embryos.

  • An air filtration system equipped with HEPA, potassium permanganate and carbon filters to protect growing embryos
  • Ceilings, walls, flooring and cabinetry made exclusively from non-toxic materials
  • Rigorous procedures to eliminate harmful volatile organic compounds in the lab
  • Patient identification systems designed to minimize any possibility of human error
  • Laboratory personnel attire including surgical-quality scrubs, masks, shoe and hair covers, much like you would find in a hospital operating room

We are committed to maintaining the high standards that our partner physicians uphold. Like every reputable IVF laboratory, we maintain meticulous records, policies and procedures that meet or exceed the high standards established by our certifying agencies and governmental bodies. Each of our laboratories is inspected and certified by all of the applicable local, state and federal agencies, including:

  • The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
  • Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendment (CLIA)
  • College of American Pathologists (CAP)

Our San Antonio IVF Laboratory Services: Responsive to Infertility and Proactive for a Fertile Future

The essential diagnostic and therapeutic services that we provide at Ovation Fertility San Antonio help fertility specialists, urologists and OB/GYN practitioners quickly and effectively carry out their mission of removing barriers to family building. Basic assessments, such as semen analysis testing, support the beginning stages of a fertility workup.

Later in fertility treatment, more advanced andrology services, such as sperm function testing or sperm preparation for intrauterine insemination,  may enhance the odds for conception. When necessary, our complete array of state-of-the-art in vitro fertilization lab services – including intracytoplasmic sperm – are available to assist with even the most challenging infertility cases.

Our embryologists have extensive experience with each of the procedures that patients with any cause of infertility may need in order for them to become pregnant.
