India has 27.5 million couples experiencing fertility troubles, only about 1% of them seek medical help, owing to a lack of information. With an investment of over Rs 500 cr, Birla fertility intends to establish more than 100 clinics across the country and around the world in the next five years. CK Birla Healthcare launched its flagship fertility clinic, Birla Fertility, and IVF in Lajpat Nagar, New Delhi, that intends to provide clinically reliable treatment and sympathetic and trustworthy care to its patients. This new clinic will also allow several renowned professionals to teach and pass on their knowledge and skills to the next generation of fertility doctors and embryologists.
“We are committed to delivering quality and patient-centred healthcare. We will strengthen this commitment by supporting every couple in their journey, with clinical excellence and compassion. Fertility treatment is not just about IVF, it is about a more holistic approach to promote good fertility health. Our brand tagline, ‘All Heart. All Science’, best summarises who we are, and how we are different,” the founder Avanti Birla said during the inauguration.
Also, the CEO of CK Birla Healthcare, Akshat Seth said, “At Birla Fertility & IVF our endeavour is to build awareness and access to reliable fertility treatment. In Delhi-NCR, we are establishing a chain of 10 state-of-the-art centers to bring world-class fertility care to a convenient location near you. This flagship centre in Lajpat Nagar adds to our presence in Punjabi Bagh, Rohini, Dwarka, and our two centers in Gurgaon (Sector 14 and Sector 51). In the coming weeks, we will be opening our centers in East Delhi, Noida, Greater Noida and Faridabad.”
Ck Birla Healthcare also provides a full range of fertility treatments, including male infertility treatments, as well as modern genetic screening, diagnostics, laparoscopic gynaecological operations, and donor services.
Speaking about the advanced fertility treatments, Dr (Col) Prof. Pankaj Talwar VSM, Head of Medical Services, Birla Fertility & IVF added, “We are also very pleased to offer fertility preservation services, which include those for cancer patients. Next in our line of treatment options will be a pioneering program – Ovarian Tissue Freezing for younger cancer patients. Also, we are proud to include endometrial receptivity array and preimplantation genetic screening in the list of multidisciplinary services we offer at Birla Fertility and IVF.”
At present, the CK Birla healthcare group has hospitals across Kolkata, Jaipur, Gurugram and Delhi. With the implementation of the Assisted Reproductive Technology (Regulation) (ART) Bill, it is expected that India will have a clear set of laws in the field of IVF and fertility treatments.
