SART is the primary organization of professionals dedicated to the practice of assisted reproductive technologies (ART) in the United States. Our organization includes over 393 member practices, representing over 85% of the ART clinics in our country. The mission of our organization is to set and help maintain the standards for ART in an effort to better serve our members and our patients.
"Fertility clinics in the U.S. report and verify data on the assisted reproductive technology (ART) cycles started and carried out in their clinics, and the outcomes of these cycles, during each calendar year. ART includes all fertility treatments in which either eggs or embryos are handled. The main type of ART is in vitro fertilization (IVF). IVF involves extracting a woman’s eggs, fertilizing the eggs in the laboratory, and then transferring the resulting embryos into the woman’s uterus through the cervix."
