Since 1983, the Atlanta-based fertility provider has contributed to over 35,000 journeys to parenthood; celebrates milestone with exclusive offer to give more aspiring parents access to quality fertility care
ATLANTA, Sept. 5, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Reproductive Biology Associates (RBA), the oldest continuously operating full-service private fertility treatment center in the United States and a part The Prelude Network® (Prelude), celebrates 40 years of providing best-in-class fertility care and helping aspiring parents build their families through a fertility journey that encompasses compassionate, personalized care rooted in advanced reproductive technologies.
Considered one of Atlanta’s top medical practices, RBA has been a cornerstone in fertility treatment since 1983, contributing to over 35,000 journeys to parenthood, and has led the way in groundbreaking achievements. These include launching the first IVF program in Georgia, becoming the first practice in the state to produce an IVF birth, being the first on the East Coast to achieve a pregnancy from a frozen embryo, and reporting the first birth from frozen donor eggs in the Western Hemisphere. Many of the techniques used in standard fertility care today, including vitrification, were pioneered by RBA physicians who collectively have over 200 years of experience in diagnosing and treating fertility challenges.
“The field of reproductive medicine has seen incredible growth and advancements over the last 40 years, and RBA is honored to be part of those developments that are used industry-wide today and have improved clinical outcomes for hundreds of thousands of aspiring parents,” says Dr. Andrew A. Toledo, MD, CEO, and physician partner of RBA since 1990. “We look forward to continuing our part to advance the field, mentoring future generations of reproductive specialists, and continue walking alongside our patients in their fertility journeys.”
To celebrate this milestone, RBA is expanding access to its comprehensive fertility care through an exclusive offer for initial consultations, allowing patients to be part of RBA’s continuing journey.
In addition to the exclusive offer for new patients, RBA invites past patients to share their fertility journeys as part of the celebration. These heartwarming stories add to RBA’s rich 40-year legacy and contribute to the collective tapestry of success across Prelude.
“It has been an honor to have RBA as part of our clinical network and bring their invaluable insights into reproductive medicine,” says TJ Farnsworth, Founder and CEO of Inception Fertility, the parent company of Prelude. “We can only imagine the contributions RBA will continue to make to our industry, congratulate them on all of their milestones, and recognize them for their commitment to unmatched patient care.”
