Our Assisted Fertility Programme has been designed to offer not only the very latest medical treatments and techniques but a more complete, holistic approach to your care as well. Quite unlike anything else you might find elsewhere.
Our years of experience have shown that, although vital, the purely medical aspects of assisted fertility are only part of a much bigger picture, and that there are many other important factors relating to your lifestyle, nutrition and emotional and psychological health, that also influence your ability to conceive. Factors which, in our experience, are all too often overlooked but which, if properly addressed, can improve your chances of conceiving with assisted fertilty treatment still further.
Which is why our assisted fertility programme offers not only the latest medical investigations and tests (click on Fertility MOTs & Ovarian Reserve Tests, Gynaecological Investigations, Male Fertility Assessments, Sexual Infections or Ultrasound Scanning for details of some of the investigative tests we can provide), but a comprehensive approach to preparing you for assisted fertility treatments too, that begins well before your treatment actually starts and then continues throughout your treatment and into the early weeks and months of pregnancy.
This includes one of our unique diet, nutrition and lifestyle assessments for both partners (included as standard in our IVF and ICSI packages, at no extra cost - click here for details) . We can also offer a whole range of other valuable consultations and natural therapies (see below), all of which are available in house, and which can, if and when they are relevant, be stitched seamlessly into your total plan of care and support, for an additional fee.
We're especially delighted that the Programme is led by the eminent consultant gynaecologist and assisted fertility specialist, Mr George Ndukwe. George has years of experience in assisted fertility and, in particular, in IVF and implantation failure.
Dr Carla Rojas is also a highly experienced IVF doctor specialising in diagnostic hysteroscopy and ultrasonography, and is working alongside Mr Ndukwe. We believe that the combination of their medical expertise alongside the focus on nutritional, lifestyle and emotional and psychological factors that will be provided by the other members of our team, will give all our clients the best possible chance of conceiving successfully.
We know that many couples often worry that in going to see an assisted fertility clinic for advice they will end up being led, almost automatically, into IVF treatment. You can be sure that, when you come to us, even if we conclude some medical assistance is needed to help you get pregnant, this won't necessarily mean that we will recommend that IVF would be the most appropriate first step. Our single aim is always to help you to get pregnant with the fewest interventions and in the most natural way possible. Which is why, if assisted fertility treatment is required, we will always thoroughly consider lower level alternatives, such as monitored cycles, ovulation induction or IUI's (click on the treatments above or see menu on the right for details) before moving on to IVF or ICSI.
But for many, of course, IVF or ICSI will still prove to be the most sensible way forward. In which case we won't waste any of your valuable time.
If, for example, you have already had IVF or ICSI elsewhere, or you are confident that this is the right step for you (perhaps because this has been recommended to you by your GP or another consultant) we can offer the full range of different IVF treatments, from natural or mild IVF, for those who would prefer to try an approach that involves no, or fewer drugs, through to standard IVF and ICSI for couples who need the extra assistance.
We like to think that one of the other things that sets us apart is the extra-high level of personalised care and one-to-one support we offer as well. Unlike at other IVF centres, where you may see lots of different medical staff, your doctor will take personal charge of every aspect of your time with us, including your in-cycle monitoring and the collection of your eggs and the transfer of your embryos. You'll be assigned your own fertility nurse too, who will be there to support and guide you throughout. We firmly believe that working with a small and consistent team, who are always available to answer any concerns or anxieties you may have, can transform your experience of assisted fertility treatment, as couples who have had to cope with the reverse know only too well.
And, of course, we're able to offer an especially wide range of helpful complementary therapies and treatments too. All of which are available in-house and easy to incorporate into your assisted fertility cycle. Women often tell us how much more vital, positive and relaxed they feel when these treatments are incorporated into their cycles. We are firm believers in the extra contribution they can make to your chances of success.
Last, but most certainly not least, we have something particularly special to offer as well for those couples who have already tried IVF unsuccessfully elsewhere.
Besides being a highly experienced gynaecologist and sub-fertility specialist, Dr Ndukwe is a world-leading authority on identifying and overcoming the causes of repeated implantation failure too. Our advanced programme of treatment in this area includes immune therapy and the very latest laboratory techniques: Array CGH/PGS and PGD.

However, if you have already had assisted fertility treatment elsewhere or are confident that this is the right step for you, we can arrange for you to see one of our Specialist Fertility Doctors at their first availability (click here for details of what the consultation covers, or here to contact us to book an appointment).
