The Egg Freezing Center (EFC) is led by Dr. John Jain, an internationally recognized expert in egg freezing research with broad experience in all areas of fertility treatment. Dr. Jain completed his medical training at the University of Southern California, where he remained for nearly a decade as a tenured professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology. His research has translated to outstanding results for his egg freezing patients and the highest pregnancy rates in the country. In 2006, he was awarded the Pacific Coast Reproductive Society’s top research prize for his work in egg freezing. He brings his extensive knowledge and expertise to EFC, where we hope to put it to work for you.
We are continually working to advance the science of egg freezing. The research we conduct at our facility in Santa Monica and with Academic institutions such as Oxford University in the United Kingdom Research is directly applied to our practice at EFC.
Our laboratories are under the Directorship of Mary Francis, who spent over 25 years as the Lab Director of the University of Southern California and with whom Dr. Jain performed some of the earliest clinical trials of egg freezing in the world. Our state-of-the-art facilities have been custom-built to rigorous specifications to ensure optimum conditions for egg storage.
The laboratories are protected by an elaborate fingerprint entry and video surveillance system. Stored eggs are monitored by a temperature-sensitive alarm and the storage canisters are kept on rollers to limit damage during an earthquake. Finally, the laboratories are connected to an on-site diesel generator capable of providing power for over a week in the event of a power loss.
Because fertility treatment impacts our patients both physically and emotionally, we have established on-site wellness programs. The on-site sanctuary offers acupuncture, and other complementary therapies proven to both significantly reduce the physical symptoms associated with stress and anxiety, and to give you the tools to restore balance and harmony in all areas of your life.
We are aware that decisions regarding fertility preservation may be influenced by financial concerns. At EFC, there are no hidden costs. We want to emphasize our willingness to discuss these issues with you openly at any time prior to or during your procedure. Before you begin, we will explain in detail all potential charges so that you can make appropriate financial plans.
