Fakih opens fertility center in the UAE
Abu Dhabi, June 2, 2013
Fakih IVF has set up a new fertility treatment center in Abu Dhabi Following its successful operation in Dubai and North America, said a senior official.
This center features the latest technologies and equipment and aims at raising the bar of fertility treatments in the UAE, stated Dr Michael Fakih, who leads the team of local experts and doctors from Europe and the US.
“The center uses groundbreaking technology which is not readily available in many other clinics, in the UAE or abroad. The EmbryoScope with Time-Lapse Technology, for example, makes it easy to select the best embryo for transfer. This increases the chances of a successful pregnancy. We also have a state of the art in-house genetics laboratory that can test for any hereditary diseases as well as perform chromosomal testing thus substantially reducing the chances of miscarriages,” he noted.
In addition to the new Abu Dhabi center, Fakih IVF is planning to open a few more centers in the UAE and other countries in the GCC in the next few years.
“We feel that the region is in need of world-class fertility treatment centers and our goal is to become the leading fertility treatment center in the region; the launch of our Abu Dhabi center is the first step in that direction,” said Dr Fakih.
The Fakih IVF center in Abu Dhabi offers a range of fertility treatments, such as: In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), Intra-Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI), Natural Cycle IVF, Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) for recurrent miscarriages and gender selection, genetic testing of hereditary diseases, male infertility treatment including azoospermia, preserving fertility in cancer patients, and many others.-TradeArabia News Service
