Tyler Fertility Clinic – History of IVF and Reproductive Fertility Center
In the early 40's, Dr. Edward T. Tyler (fertility specialist) founded the Tyler Fertility Clinic in Los Angeles, CA. Dr. Tyler himself had experienced the stress and pressures of infertility. The fertility clinic has remained in the same location until a recent relocation to Beverly Hills, CA. Dr. Tyler also started Family Planning and IVF Fertility Center in the greater Los Angeles area and became the first Medical Director of "Family Planning IVF Center of Los Angeles".
Throughout his professional life, he was closely affiliated with the Department of Medicine and the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology of the UCLA Medical School in Los Angeles. He served in numerous functions for a variety of professional and lay societies and presided over courses dealing both with the population problems and infertility. He was a member of the World Health Organization's scientific group studying fertility. In the late 50's, he became one of the directors of the then young American Fertility Society which has now developed into the second largest association of obstetricians and gynecologists in this country.
He also became a director of the Pacific Coast Fertility Society and served as its president in 1960 and 1961. He was a member and in many instances an honorary member of approximately 24 national as well as international societies and associations.
Dr. Tyler has authored some 200 scientific papers. To name a few:
As early as 1947, he published an in depth study on spermatogenesis (production of sperm) and therapy of infertility.
In 1961, he published a well known book, "Sterility: Office Management of the Infertile Couple" and contributed to various other textbooks.
In the mid-60's, he published a report on the use of injectable medication enhancing fertility in infertile patients.
He has produced several motion pictures for physicians as well as the lay public.
He was a recipient of fourteen awards and honors bestowed on him by national as well as international associations. Even at the time of his untimely death, he was actively pursuing studies of human conception.
His interests and skills also reached outside the medical field. He was a member of the Writer's Guild of America and wrote for many television and radio programs, including the popular "Groucho Marx Show".
Dr. Edward T. Tyler and his wife Lilian were optimists and possibly because of this, they were quite successful in many of their activities, including the resolution of their own infertility problems, ending with a family of four children.
