GREATEST EXPERTISE IN MEDICINE, SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY

In our practice you will be treated by experienced specialists in reproductive medicine and biology. Our team is made up of three gynaecologists specialising in gynaecological endocrinology and reproductive medicine, two biologists specialising in embryology as well as a specialist in male reproductive medicine with many years of experience treating male sterility. We have brought all these people together because a successful fertility using modern reproductive medicine stands or falls on the knowledge and expertise of its doctors and biologists, and because we see the treatment of men and women as being of equal importance.
