We are excited to announce the opening of our newest full-service IVF center in Fairfax, VA coming this spring. In the past, Virginia residents had to travel to SGF’s Rockville, MD location for procedures. The new 19,000 square foot space in Fairfax will be home to physician offices for patient consultations, a high-tech embryology laboratory—located adjacent to a spacious procedure center with an operating room, five recovery bays, and three embryo transfer rooms—as well as a dedicated andrology laboratory for sperm preparation.
SGF has been serving Northern Virginia with patient-centric fertility care for the past 25 years and offers seven locations, nine reproductive endocrinologists, and one reproductive urologist, many of whom were named Northern Virginia Magazine’s Top Doctors for Infertility.
“The opening of an IVF center in Fairfax, VA is especially significant for two reasons. It’s in response to tremendous patient need and represents our continued growth in the region. As well, it significantly eases the travel required of nearly 30% of our patients who historically traveled to Rockville for procedures,” says Chief Executive Officer of Shady Grove Fertility, Mark Segal. “Our Virginia patients will now have the added convenience of accessing the care they’ve come to expect from our center in a location much closer to home.”
The Virginia center is home to the fourth embryology lab operated by Shady Grove Fertility, joining the largest freestanding IVF laboratory in the United States in Rockville, Maryland as well as Towson, MD; Atlanta, GA; and Chesterbrook, PA.

The lab is equipped with the very latest technology including anti-shake tables, special ventilation, state-of-the-art air filtration systems, advanced incubators and media, and inverted microscopes to evaluate embryo growth, development, and quality, to name a few. The lab will operate under the distinct leadership of nationally and internationally known Jim Graham, Laboratories Director, and Michael J. Tucker, Ph.D., Scientific Director of Shady Grove Fertility’s IVF and Embryology Laboratories.
“Through Shady Grove Fertility’s dedicated research and continuous innovation, our center stays at the cutting-edge of reproductive science to improve outcomes for our patients and help even more people conceive,” says Eric D. Levens, M.D. of Shady Grove Fertility’s Fairfax, VA location.
