Texas Fertility Center Responds to Dateline Story on IVF Lab Mix-Up

The Dateline story “Inconceivable” aired Sunday, Jan. 6, 2013 and detailed how a mix-up occurred in a fertility lab resulting in transfer of embryos to the wrong patient during an IVF cycle.

Carolyn became pregnant, and soon learned of the error which DNA testing confirmed. Both women, the biological and gestational mothers, then began a long process of grief, resolution and healing.

After watching the Dateline episode, Texas Fertility Center Reproductive Endocrinologist Dr. Kaylen Silverberg immediately responded with an open letter to TFC patients explaining how TFC does everything humanly possible to prevent mistakes in its certified IVF laboratory.

“There are many misconceptions associated with infertility, and I want to ensure that people understand the extraordinary high standards that are used to govern reputable, certified fertility labs,” Dr. Silverberg says. “I liken this ‘Inconceivable’ story to a plane crash. While the news is tragic and shocking, it’s not representative of the standard of care that occurs every day in reproductive medicine.”

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 150,000 fresh IVF cycles take place in the US every year. That trans
