Laparoscopic surgery is a minimally invasive surgery that is performed on the abdomen and pelvis with the use of a fiber-optic instrument measuring 5-10 mm in diameter that is attached to a small camera. This provides visualization of all the abdominal and pelvic organs through a small incision measuring 1cm or less. Laparoscopic surgeries can be used for diagnostic purposes but also to perform various surgical treatments.
Laparoscopic surgeries are helpful for diagnosing and treating a number of infertility conditions including:
Hysteroscopy is an endoscopic procedure with a similar fiber-optic instrument to a laparoscope that is attached to a small camera to visualize the inside of the uterine cavity. A hysteroscope is entered through the cervix and thus does not require any incisions. Hysteroscopies are outpatient procedures with short recovery time.
Hysteroscopy can aid in diagnosing and treating various intra-uterine pathologies including:
Request an Appointment
We believe that the spouse/partner is critical to supporting the process you will be going through. Although it is not mandatory that your partner attend, the first appointment is designed to evaluate the history of both patient and partner in order to best determine possible underlying causes of infertility. Approximately 40% of infertility is related to men, we believe it is important that we address both the woman and man efficiently. We also request that your spouse/partner complete new patient forms at the same time so there is no delay in any diagnostic testing.
Patient Portal: This is the best way to communicate any questions or concerns to our team.
During office hours, you can also text us at 602 765 2229.
Our main line for both offices is 602 765 2229. Should you have questions during normal hours, we are available to take your call.
Emergency After Hours: If you have an emergency after hours, on the weekend or a holiday, we have a clinical team on on-call to assist you. Simply call our main number and you will be connected to someone who will assist you. Please note any misuse of the after-hours line with non emergent requests may result in a $50 charge per call to your account.
As always, for true medical emergencies, call 911 or go to your closest Hospital’s Emergency Room.
At IVF Phoenix™, we have financial counselors who are specially trained to understand insurance benefits and the resources available to help you afford treatment. Whether you have insurance or are paying out of pocket, we make every resource available to you to help you achieve the outcome you desire.
Before your first visit, we will attempt to perform complimentary benefit verification on your behalf. Because the level and scope of fertility benefits vary widely, you should take every step needed to be sure you understand your benefits prior to your visit. We encourage you to contact your Health plan or employer to verify any information we were able to obtain. In most cases, we are able to file claims for the office visits and tests related to the diagnosis of infertility. However, there will be instances for some people where services provided related to infertility are specifically excluded. In these instances, you will be personally responsible for the payment for services. IVF Phoenix™ participates in most commercial insurance plans. We are not in network with ACCCHS.
Since all new patient appointments are virtual, we ask that you complete the new patient paperwork which has a medical request form. If you have copies of your medical records they can be faxed to 602 493 6641 or email to email@example.com
My husband and I are so thankful for Dr. Couvaras and staff. We were struggling to have a family and stumbled across the IVF Phoenix website. We are from Canada and the staff was fantastic to deal with and very accommodating to work with. We always had support no matter what time of the day. We now have the most perfect beautiful little boy to complete our family!!! So grateful and blessed!!!
The staff and Dr. Couvaras were so kind and understanding. They called me by name as soon as I walked in. Dr. Couvaras was incredibly knowledgeable and knew from the first visit what was going on and after tests came back he was 100% right. He was informative, personable and took care of my health needs as a priority. I never felt left on the back burner. Innovative for sure because now I have 3 amazing children!
This is hands down the BEST fertility clinic in all of Az. Dr. Couvaras and Rhoda are amazing!! Not only are they compassionate and helpful beyond expectations they really look at the whole body and systems and get to the root of the problem. If you are even thinking about fertility go see this place first!
From the moment we met Dr. Couvaras, My husband and I felt totally comfortable, secure, and well informed. Additionally, the nurses and staff at IVF Phoenix provided prompt, efficient care with both expertise and patience. Whether ordering prescriptions, educating me on how to properly administer medications or explaining options and probable outcomes of specific treatment protocols, Dr. Couvaras, and his team were simply remarkable. I never felt alone, and appreciated the close guidance they provided throughout our entire treatment. I couldn’t be happier with the results! My husband and I are now 12 weeks pregnant, and are absolutely thrilled! I would recommend Ivf Phoenix to anyone who is interested in finding the cause of their infertility. We love and appreciate everyone at Ivf Phoenix, they are a 2nd family to us. We still can’t thank them enough for making our dreams come true!
Dr. Courvaras is the best there is in the infertility world!! Our first baby is here because of him and his team. Our baby is 17 and will be graduating from high school in less than a month!! We have never forgotten him and the gift he helped us have!!
