IVI Fertility opens new clinic in Dubai
DUBAI, January 2, 2017
IVI Fertility, a globally renowned centre for fertility treatment, has set up a new headquarter in Dubai, UAE.
This follows its successful launch of operations in Abu Dhabi in May last year and over 120 successful pregnancies in less than a year, said a statement.
“The opening of this office is very significant when viewed against the findings of a report by Dubai Statistic Centre (DSC) that fertility was among the top treatments sought by medical tourists who visited Dubai in 2015, next only to treatment of osteoporosis, dermatology and plastic surgery,” said Dr Human Fatemi, medical Director, IVI Fertility Middle East.
“We realized that a lot of our patients at Abu Dhabi clinic came from Dubai, Al Ain and other parts of the UAE. This factor, combined with the booming health travel sector in Dubai, prompted us to open a new clinic in Dubai,” said Dr Barbara Lawrenz, specialist – obstetrics and gynecology at IVI Fertility Middle East.
“The Middle East has an estimated 2 to 3 million couples in the age group of 20-40 who are facing difficulties in starting a family. This challenge of infertility is globally recognized as a major health issue. In the last few years, we all have probably read or heard about advancements in fertility treatments,” added Dr Fatemi.
“IVF involves combining the egg and the sperm outside the body in a laboratory. Once an embryo or embryos form, they are then transferred back to the uterus of the woman. If done with the correct approach, this technique delivers successful results. However, there have been cases of severe male sterility, previously failed IVF cycles, failure with Intrauterine Insemination or even limited number of available oocytes that pose challenges. Such cases do not necessarily yield results with the conventional IVF technique,” he added.
“The Dubai clinic is a major step in making sure that highly advanced, world’s best treatments are easily available to couples desiring to become parents. At IVI, our extensive research in understanding GCC-specific factors of infertility amongst couples and personalized treatments is the crucial factor behind our success rate of over 70 per cent,” added Dr Human Fatemi, medical director, IVI Fertility. – TradeArabia News Service
