INDIRA IVF is a leading fertility treatment provider in India with branches in Delhi, Udaipur, Pune, Patna, Jaipur and Indore.
Dr Arvind Vaid, Director, Indira IVF, Delhi, says the company plans to open up centres in all parts of India, which would be ideal for NRIs and foreigners, a growing number of who visit India for such treatments.
Infertility cases are on the rise the world over, especially in India, due to excessive work-related stress, irregular eating habits, increasing pollution, late marriages and various other factors. According to Vaid, there has been a spurt in the number of cases of couples seeking help for infertility.
About 15 to 20 years ago, just 10 per cent of couples in India would need some assistance. Today, the figure has gone up to 18 to 20 per cent. Interestingly, a growing number of couples today seek help from specialists, who provide remedies including clinical treatment by experts, unlike in the past.
Clinical specialists at the Indira Infertility Clinics have helped couples navigate through the often complicated process of infertility curation and fulfil their dreams of parenthood. Indira IVF was one of the first to introduce one-to-one counselling sessions involving comprehensive analysis of the patient's report and brainstorming sessions on the range of suitable treatment plans.
Indira IVF offers a clutch of treatments including fertility work-up, In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF), Laser-assisted hatching, Cryopreservation, Intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), Intrauterine insemination (IUI), Egg Donor programme, Blastocyst culture and transfer, Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis and screening, 3D/4D Ultrasound and Advanced level fertility surgeries (Laproscopy and hysteroscopy).
Vaid says that Indira IVF lays great emphasis on creating awareness about infertility. "We have conducted more than 200 free awareness fertility camps all across India, in order to educate infertile couples about their problem and the probable solutions to fight it," he adds.
What are the chances of success for an infertile couple that opts for treatment? Vaid says Indira IVF centres have been instrumental in achieving very high success rates over the years with continuous innovations and improvements in process and systems with dedicated research and development.
"We have provided treatment even for post-menopausal women above the age of 55," he says. "In the past, it was difficult for a woman to achieve pregnancy after 45, but with the use of proper technology and techniques, we've seen pregnancies occur even in women aged 61."
Most patients who opt for IVF conceive in the first cycle, he says. Indira IVF is one of the few clinics to conduct the entire IVF procedure in "Closed Working Chamber" IVF technology, which provides unique advantage to mimic a womb-like condition for eggs and sperm during the IVF process in order to form good quality and healthy embryos.
Referring to possible complications in the procedures, Vaid says they are minor. One of the possibilities is that a woman may conceive twins; nearly a third of the women achieve multiple pregnancies, he adds.
Cities like Delhi have emerged as major hubs for medical tourism and a growing number of patients - both NRIs and foreigners - visit clinics for such treatment. One of the main reasons is the cost factor, says Vaid. In India, the cost of treatment is just one-third of the cost in the west, he adds.
"Also in the UK, there is a waiting period of 12 to 18 months, so many patients prefer coming to India for treatment," he points out. "And the quality of embryologists and other specialists in India is very good. The average success rate of Indira IVF clinics is 65 per cent and we have been able to bring smiles on the face of 8,000 infertile couples in the last five years using Closed Working Chamber IVF technology."
Vaid says that Indira IVF is one of the first infertility clinics to have made treatment affordable for the masses.
