Westwood Cryobank is a continuation of the cryobank of The Tyler Medical
Clinic in Westwood. The Tyler Medical Clinic was opened more than 50
years ago and is still at the same location across the corner from UCLA
School of Medicine. To our knowledge, it is the oldest institution
specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of infertility in the
southwest part of the country.
The founder, E.T. Tyler, M.D. did pioneer many tests and procedures in
this field. In 1947, he described his technique of insemination, in
1956, he reported results of sperm freezing and successful pregnancies.
For many years, the cryobank at the Tyler Medical Clinic was the only
one in this part of the country.
Later, other banks were opened. The personnel of the Tyler Medical
Clinic were helpful in establishing many new banks in Southern
California and we were particular in passing high standards in donor
selection and screening, in the technique of cryopreservation and
record-keeping to these new banks.
The bank is doing a truly excellent job. Recently, we were successful
in establishing a pregnancy using sperm cryopreserved in our bank for
almost twenty years.
