Igniting a ray of hope among many couples, Fortis Bloom IVF Centre, at the la femme hospital New Delhi recently announced the launch of a revolutionary non-invasive digital microscope that will boost IVF Success.
This new technology was launched in India for the first time. Former Miss World, Diana Hayden, unveiled the new technolgy along with the experienced gynecologists and infertility clinicians, Dr Hrishikesh Pai, and Dr Nandita Palshetkar. Also present on the occasion were Aditya Vij, CEO and Ashish Bhatia, regional director, Fortis Healthcare.
A bundle of joy
On the occasion, Dr Pai of Lilavati Hospital, Mumbai and Fortis la femme, Delhi said, "Embryos are normally implanted after two or five days in culture." He also informed that women are often implanted with upto three embryos at once, which lead to multiple pregnancies. This technology analyses the embryo quality, that enables doctors to identify the best embryos leading to increased transfer of good embryos and thus resulting in an enhanced success of IVF treatment.
Dr Nandita Palshetkar, a gynecologist at the Lilavati Hospital, Mumbai and Fortis la femme Delhi, says, "IVF success rates currently stand at about 40 per cent per attempt in women less than 35 years of age. This technology would enable us to put two or one embryos back, without compromising on pregnancy rates. This will decrease the incidence of twin and triplet pregnancies and minimise the problems of multiple births such as premature babies.
Bloom IVF & Fertility Centres were started 20 years ago. This IVF Group is running five full-fledged IVF units in Mumbai, Navi Mumbai, Nerul, New Delhi and Chandigarh.
