Hanabusa IVF - A Better Patient Experience

Our San Diego-based fertility clinic provides patients with a personalized treatment plan, prioritizing quality, safety, comfort and success. We specialize in Japanese or Mini IVF, a minimal stimulation approach to IVF, which combines gentle procedures and state-of-the-art technology to create a healthy embryo leading to a successful pregnancy.

Our innovative approach optimizes results by focusing on retrieving the best quality eggs to maximize the chances for a healthy embryo.

We are dedicated to providing exceptional care to all—even the most challenging cases. Our Mini IVF approach is particularly well suited for patients with Diminished Ovarian Reserve (DOR) or Premature Ovarian Failure (POF). DOR or POF patients with low Antral Follicle Count (AFC), low Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) or high Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) may be best treated with Mini IVF’s minimalist protocol. Hanabusa IVF’s fertility specialists have developed a rigorous set of guidelines for the clinical management of our patients with POF/DOR. You can read more about Mini IVF with POF/DOR here.

Thank you for taking the time to learn about our center.

Who We Are

We are a Boutique IVF operation where we take only a few patients at a time and provide each with excellent service on every level. This allows us to develop strong relationships with our patients and create a customized treatment plan for each one. Unlike larger fertility clinics where the goal is to perform as many cycles as possible, we concentrate on each individual case, providing extra care to develop a fertility plan with the highest chances for success.

Conventional IVF vs. Mini IVF

At Hanabusa IVF, our unique approach to ovarian stimulation protocol is called Mini IVF. This method focuses on recruiting only the highest quality follicles that carry the best oocytes available in that cycle. Rather than stimulating the growth of dozens of follicles through injectable drugs, we use significantly less medication to cultivate a purer oocyte. After harvesting these eggs we aim creating and implanting one, high-quality embryo that has the best chance of successfully developing into a healthy pregnancy.

Diminished Ovarian Reserve

The traditional approach to IVF is not necessarily the optimal way to access your eggs if you have Diminished Ovarian Reserve (DOR). Traditional IVF protocols are designed to stimulate as many eggs as possible in the hope that some of these eggs will produce normal embryos. Unfortunately, women with DOR are at a significant disadvantage with traditional IVF protocols because they have fewer eggs available. IVF clinics routinely cancel cycles if patients do not demonstrate a minimum number of follicles during an ultrasound examination. Therefore, women with DOR have a significant risk of IVF cycle cancellation at these clinics.

Fertility Assistance for Same Sex Couples

As a world-class IVF provider in San Diego, Hanabusa IVF is proud to offer fertility services to LGBT couples throughout Southern California and beyond. We serve both male and female couples utilizing all available IVF service options to help them to fulfill their family dream.

What Our Patients Say About Us

After hours of research about IVF, I found that most websites had a limited amount of information buried under the same repro center promises and static websites. Finding Hanabusa IVF's site piqued my interest, though, and after reading a couple of your blogs, I felt safe. A doctor that spends time educating, pointing out both the negatives and the positives is both unique and refreshing. I am so glad I found you and can't wait to meet you!
