The Silverman Method
The Silverman Method involves In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) with Pre-Implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD), (IVF/PGD). I further enhance this technique with the additional benefit of GSMART, my exclusive sperm-separation method.
My GSMART Method is an effective and non-invasive procedure. I combine sperm with human serum albumin (HSA). I separate the sperm cells based on whether they carry the male or female chromosome. Only the sperm of the chosen gender are used for fertilization of the collected eggs. This further increases the chances for a successful gender choice.
In addition, I am the only specialist who successfully incorporates the Transcutaneous Electrical Acupoint Stimulation (TEAS), a form of acupressure treatment into the gender selection process. Stimulating specific acupoints – before and after embryo transfer aids in implantation, nourishes the embryo and increases pregnancy rates. I include TEAS as an effective and non-invasive method to increase the rate of successful pregnancies. TEAS is an additional tool that improves the results of gender selection.
By combining these unique methods within The Silverman method, I’ve developed an approach that results in a near 100% success rate.
The Silverman Method is also recommended for couples concerned about passing on genetic diseases. IVF with PGD stands for In Vitro Fertilization with Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis. During this process, embryos are created from the sperm and eggs. The embryos are then analyzed to create a complete genetic profile so only healthy embryos of the preferred sex are transferred to the uterus. Even before my unique enhancements, IVF/PGD method had been recognized to offer the highest success rate for gender selection.
In addition to its effectiveness, IVF with PGD can offer you added peace of mind with optional tests of embryos for genetic diseases before implantation. Recent advances in genetically enhanced assisted reproductive technologies (ART), also known as reprogenetic technologies, now enable optional screening for a variety of genetic mutations, including BRCA1 and BRCA2 that could prevent genetic conditions, including cystic fibrosis, Duchenne muscular dystrophy, hemophilia, sickle cell disease, Tay-Sachs disease, breast and ovarian cancers and many others.
You choose the method best suited for your needs and I personally am there for you, to guide you through the process.
TRANSCUTANEOUS ELECTRICAL ACUPOINT SIMULATION (TEAS)
This is an acupuncture-like procedure that has been scientifically shown to increase pregnancy rates. Unlike traditional acupuncture, TEAS does not involve needles. Instead, I place electrodes at carefully selected acupoint locations to stimulate nerves in that region.
TEAS has been used as a treatment in reproductive health in China for many years. Several scientific studies show that these therapies improve pregnancy rate for women using assisted reproductive technology.
For example, in a seminal study published in Fertility and Sterility, one of the most prestigious medical journals in reproductive medicine, the researchers concluded that use of TEAS significantly increased pregnancy rate for women who underwent embryo transfer.
