The Fertility Wellness Institute Becomes First Center in State of Ohio to Offer Revolutionary INVOcell Solution

MEDFORD, Mass., Nov. 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- INVO Bioscience, Inc. (IVOB), a medical device company granted FDA clearance for the first Intravaginal Culture System, INVOcell™, today announced that The Fertility Wellness Institute, the new fertility clinic of famed physician, Dr. NeeOo Chin, opened its doors on November 5, 2018 by offering INVOcell to its patients. The Fertility Wellness Institute will become the first center in the state of Ohio to offer the revolutionary solution to its patients.

INVO Bioscience (IVOB) is a medical device company, headquartered in Medford, Massachusetts, focused on creating simplified, lower cost treatment options for patients diagnosed with infertility. The company's lead product, the INVOcell, is a novel medical device used in infertility treatment that enables egg fertilization and early embryo development in the woman's vaginal cavity.

NeeOo W. Chin, MD, founder of The Fertility Wellness Institute of Ohio, said, "INVOcell represents a new and exciting approach to fertility. INVOcell's ability to offer a cost-effective solution with strong success rates was a key factor in my decision to open The Fertility Wellness Institute. I look forward to offering this innovative alternative to families in southwest Ohio, northern Kentucky and the southeast Indiana region."

INVOcell is a patented medical device used in the treatment of infertility that enables egg fertilization and early embryo development to take place in the woman's body, in vivo. The INVO Solution allows women to incubate their own gametes, providing a psychological benefit while reducing the risk of wrong embryo transfer. Utilizing a mild stimulation protocol, it decreases the number of oocytes required, which may reduce the risk of severe ovarian hyperstimulation (OHSS), reduce the risk of multiple births, and/or reduce the need for embryo cryopreservation and storage. As a lower cost option to traditional IVF, INVOcell expands access to patients who otherwise cannot afford the traditional method or would prefer a more natural, cultural, or religious appropriate choice.

Katie Karloff, CEO of INVO Bioscience, commented, "We congratulate Dr. Chin on the opening of his new center, The Fertility Wellness Institute, and are excited by his commitment to offer INVOcell as a core component of his practice. By offering INVOcell, Dr. Chin can provide his patients a safe, effective, and cost-efficient solution for their fertility care. We couldn't be more pleased to be aligned with Dr. Chin, one of America's top doctors, in launching this exciting new solution to the state of Ohio."

An open house is planned on Sunday, November 18, 2018 from 2:00 to 5:00PM. Please call 513-326-4300 for details. The address is:
