His dedication to research would serve him well in his future endeavors.
After joining the Fertility Center of Las Vegas in 1999, Dr. Daneshmand was integral in establishing the city’s first egg freezing program. He’s collaborated with his partner, Dr. Bruce Shapiro, to develop IVF protocols to improve pregnancy rates, including PTEC (post thaw extended culture), one of the most successful IVF regimens currently available. Their groundbreaking findings were published in Fertility and Sterility. The doctor has also served as a reviewer for the same publication. Drs. Daneshmand and Shapiro’s voluminous research and publications have been presented at both national and international conferences. As a result of their breadth of research, The Fertility Center of Las Vegas was recognized in IVFreports.org for its stellar pregnancy rates.
