Patients Recommend Our Voorhees, New Jersey, Practice
My wife and I had trouble getting and staying pregnant. We had been through two other doctors before a friend recommended Dr. Manara. Now, we are expecting twins—and we didn’t even have to go through IVF at this practice. The results speak for themselves.View on Google

Egg Retrieval Facts
- Before the procedure begins at our New Jersey fertility clinic, you will be given a mild sedative by our licensed nurse anesthetists (CRNAs), and your vitals are monitored throughout the procedure.
- Using intra-vaginal ultrasound to guide him, your doctor will pass a needle through the vaginal wall and into the ovary to complete the egg retrieval. Each of the follicles containing the eggs may be aspirated using gentle, carefully monitored suction.
- The entire egg removal procedure takes approximately 15 minutes. You will be monitored for about an hour as the medication wears off.
- You will then be discharged to rest at home. Most patients return to normal activities the following day. Using traditional methods or intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), your eggs will be fertilized and monitored for growth.
