Difference IVF private clinic and other medical abroad centers

  1. A particular specialization of its activities. The services provided by such clinics, usually are associated with the patient's infertility treatments ranging from establishing the causes of infertility, including a comprehensive diagnosis, to using the most sophisticated treatments, including IVF, ICSI, PGD embryos and a wide variety of programs, also the inclusion of donor programs and programs with the services of a surrogate mother.
    This way, the NEXT GENERATION CLINIC specializes in complex cases of helping patients overcome infertility by using 12 different types of IVF programs, recommending their patients a selective embryo transfer, having done preimplantation diagnosis with the most modern methods available to date in the world of science.
  2. The presence of high-tech equipment. For the organization of an embryology laboratory in an IVF abroad clinic it is required to have laminar flow cabinets, creation of a flow of fresh air, a few high-precision microscopes, several flatbed incubators, laser installation with ICSI-manipulators for hatching and biopsies as well as cryogenic equipment for the creation of a Cryobank. Other than that, the space in the building which is similar to the baby IVF center, must be equipped with a special ventilation system with HEPA-filters and have a special power supply system with a powerful uninterruptible power supply. In order to provide the genetic laboratory, it is required to have a new generation sequencer for processing of data and a large set of auxiliary equipment for amplifying the samples, etc. As can be seen from the information written above, the fertility centers differ from other medical centers primarily by the presence of a strong material and technical base. The modern equipment of the private IVF clinic - is a guarantee of its success.
  3. The presence of highly skilled professional specialists which is extremely rare nowadays. This is primarily doctors of reproduction. To become a reproductologist one must obtain a degree in obstetrics and gynecology, have certificates in the field of endocrine gynecology and then be trained in special courses organized in major cities of Russia in this profession. But the most precious experience in the Clinic of Reproductive Medicine is getting to work in a team with more experienced doctors. Embryologists today are prepared in several major universities in the country, this way in St. Petersburg three annual University graduate specialists can start working on this profession. But in this field the knowledge of new methods of working with cells, sperm and embryos can only be obtained in the course of working at a clinic every day. Geneticists of a Laboratory, which know the preimplantation diagnosis protocol on microchips and have mastered the techniques, the sequencing of embryos are all very rare in Russia. A unique selection of personnel for the reproductive health center is what allows to start this complex work to overcome the infertility of a couple.

Important parameters to choose reproductive health center

  • Experienced doctors of Reproduction
  • Presence of modern high-tech equipment
  • The spectrum of offered services
  • Percentage of IVF success

20% of patients of the clinic of Reproduction and Genetics NGC-are foreign patients from Sweden, Finland, Germany, Holland, England and other European countries, as well as the US, Africa, China, India. A big donor database, a presence of a genetics center and loyalty of the Russian legislation to programs of donation and surrogacy makes NGC clinic a place to achieve a result for many foreign patients.

In addition, the level of prices pleasantly surprises the foreign patients and partners. Our IVF center can keep such low prices for services because the founder SPARTA (Saint-Petersburg Reproduction Agency) company is the largest agency for donor and surrogacy programs and we do not have a separate margin for agency services.

Success rates in IVF

IVF success rates in the NGC clinic in programs using donor eggs is 60-65%, taking into account the offensive clinical pregnancy from the first attempt at IVF, surrogacy programs-65% on the first attempt of transferring embryo using donor eggs.

When coming to the medical center that specializes in assisted reproduction, you have to understand that even this unique method is not a 100% probability of success on the first attempt of the procedure, and you must work together with your doctor, trusting him, go through this path of treating infertility, clearly respecting all the instructions and regulations and always believing that the child will come!
