Who We Are

Bringing Japanese IVF to San Diego

Hanabusa IVF specializes in Minimal Stimulation IVF ("Mini IVF"), which is an alternative to the high-stimulation protocols universally performed throughout the United States.

Our approach is unique from standard treatments, not only regarding the stimulation medication protocol but also in its approach to IVF, which emphasizes retrieval of only the best quality eggs (rather than quantity), leading the greatest opportunity to create a healthy embryo. We can now achieve this while minimizing the risks, side effects, and complications associated with traditional IVF protocols.

A Team Committed to You & Your Family

Masahide Shiotani, M.D., Ph.D., founder of the largest IVF center in Kobe, Japan, Hanabusa Women’s Clinic, and Lyndon Chang, M.D., FACOG, a leading pioneer in the advancement of Mini IVF in the United States, collaborated to create Hanabusa IVF here in California. By bringing this innovative technique to the States, they have opened up a world of opportunity to thousands who have had problems with infertility.

Our dedicated, experienced, and professional team is here to assist you on your journey towards building a family. We offer personalized treatment plans to meet each patient’s individual needs with state-of-the-art technology and extraordinary care.
