Fertility Institute of Hawaii becomes First Fertility Clinic in Hawaii to Adopt INVOcell
HONOLULU and MEDFORD, Mass., April 3, 2018 — INVO Bioscience, Inc. (OTC: IVOB), a medical device company granted FDA clearance for the first Intravaginal Culture System, INVOcell™, today announced that the Fertility Institute of Hawaii, located in Honolulu, is the first clinic in Hawaii to add INVOcell to its scope of reproductive treatments with the addition of INVOcell.
Dr. John Frattarelli, M.D., founder of the Fertility Institute of Hawaii, commented, “INVOcell is a welcomed addition to our palette of services. It provides an additional option for our patients to create the loving families they so desire. The cost of in-vitro fertilization (IVF) and other fertility treatments can add an additional burden to a process that is very stressful in and of itself. We believe it is important to provide this innovative, and cost-effective, approach to achieving pregnancies where other methods have not achieved the desired results. INVOcell may very well open the door to pregnancy to many couples that otherwise may have given up hope. We are excited with the future possibilities.”
Dr. Anatte Karmon, M.D., the Clinical and Research Director at the Fertility Institute of Hawaii, attended the INVOcell training program held on March 24th, 2018. Dr. Karmon commented, “I was impressed by the simplicity and success rate of the INVOcell model. We are a comprehensive fertility treatment center and take pride in offering all traditional and cutting-edge services to our patients. We are thrilled to announce that INVOcell will now be available to our patients and will provide a cost-effective approach to family building.”
INVOcell has the ability to significantly transform the way in which doctors assist infertile patients to become pregnant in a simpler, more natural and cost-effective manner. INVOcell is a patented medical device used in the treatment of infertility that enables egg fertilization and early embryo development to take place in the woman’s body, in vivo. The simplistic INVO can be easily performed in an appropriately trained physician’s office without the need for expensive overhead.
