Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility Unit
It is a priority for use to make sure that patients achieve conception in the shortest time and easiest manner and at the lowest cost possible. On top of routine processes like fertility consultancy, ovulation induction, intrauterine insemination and in vitro fertilization/intracytoplasmic sperm injection, we offer other services like preimplantation genetic diagnosis and fertility protection through cryopreservation of oocytes and ovarian tissue. Under guidance of evidence-based medicine, our clinic is capable of obtaining, practicing and even developing any novel technology that we believe will contribute to our patients’ care.
Our perinatology unit concentrates on genetic consultancy for conditions associated with the fetus or parents, recurrent miscarriage, fetal developmental deficit, preeclampsia, preterm delivery, multiple pregnancies and evaluation of women experiencing various high-risk pregnancy complications.
Top-level healthcare services and up-to-date diagnostic and treatment methods are provided by the perinatology team to ensure a healthy mother and fetus. For this purpose, the team is in collaboration with neonatology, medical genetics, pediatric surgery and pediatric cardiology. Fetal anomaly screening under advance ultrasonography during the first and second trimesters and fetal echocardiography examination are services provided at the unit as well. Our perinatology specialists are specialized also in techniques/practices like fetal blood transfusion, radiofrequency ablation, laser application and fetal shunt placement in addition to diagnostic procedures like amniocentesis, chorionic villus sampling and cordocentesis.
Our foremost objective is to deliver optimal diagnostic and treatment services to gynecological cancer patients as a team equipped with current knowledge and the highest-standard technology currently available in the field of gynecological oncology.
