Fertility and reproductive medicine

Over 17,500 babies born and counting

We help individuals and couples with complicated fertility problems or circumstances to achieve their goal of a family

Overview

We provide a holistic approach to investigating and treating fertility problems. Even if you've been turned away elsewhere, we give you all the information you need to make decisions about your treatment. And if you have a chance of success, we let you know. Many of our patients successfully start a family, often after being declined treatment elsewhere. In fact, our success rates are consistently among the best in the UK. Our laboratory offers the latest fertility treatments including IMSI which allows better selection of sperm for treatment. CGH for genetic testing of embryos to either improve success rates or exclude known medical problems, and time-lapse imaging techniques to improve embryo selection. We also offer tests to exclude causes of recurrent miscarriage, carry out 3D pelvic scans and offer surgical expertise to diagnose or treat problems causing fertility issues.

Expertise

Our fertility consultants cover all aspects of fertility treatment, reproductive health and assisted reproduction for those having trouble conceiving.
