There is no waiting list for starting your treatment at Prague Fertility Centre. The timeliness of planning your IVF treatment complements the geographical location. Both Czech Republic and its capital Prague are very easily reachable by either plane or direct, modern bus and train lines. But most importantly, given its results, Prague Fertility Centre is one of the most successful assisted reproduction clinics in Europe.
It is the most innovative fertility clinic in the Czech Republic, having its very own embryology research department. This is led by MUDr. Daniel Hlinka, Ph.D., co-founder of the clinic and world-renowned ESHRE-certified embryologist. (editor’s note: European Society for Human Reproduction and Embryology).
Dr. Hlinka and his experienced colleagues are conducting extensive research in our clinic’s state-of-the-art laboratory. Prague Fertility Centre thus manages to be a top innovator in the field, translating into practice new methods of treatment. Our innovations are later gradually adopted by other clinics. An example is the Cognitive Automation of Time-lapse Images (CATI) developed by Dr. Hlinka – the first automated system in the world to evaluate and select embryos using artificial intelligence. The CATI method allows for the monitoring of the embryo’s vitality and genetic structure in order to diagnose possible defects at an early stage of development. With the use of this method, the efficiency of preimplantation genetic diagnosis and screening can be significantly improved. It also helps in reducing the risk of miscarriage or birth defects.
Another original method developed at Prague Fertility Centre is OptimFert – its goal is also to increase the success rate of your fertility treatment. This is a method to determine when the egg is mature enough and ready for fertilization via intracytoplasmic sperm injection, or ICSI. This important moment is a significantly dominant factor affecting the quality of the embryo. The non-invasive OptimFert method is based on monitoring the oocytes – mature eggs – in a laboratory environment using polarizing microscopy. This can be used in IVF cycles with both fresh and frozen eggs.
Dr. Hlinka is also the founder of our flagship educational portal dedicated to IVF patients and professionals alike – Fertilitypedia. This platform was set up by Dr. Hlinka and his colleagues to help you on the path to achieving pregnancy. The online tools it offers allow users to learn more about their infertility diagnosis or interpret the results received from the doctor. It is also a completely unique source of professional information on fertility, being used worldwide by a number of experts, especially embryologists.
Prague Fertility Centre welcomes patients from all around the world. The liberal legislation of the Czech Republic offers a wide range of treatments, from standard IVF cycles with own eggs to treatments with donor eggs or donated embryos. Prague can be the right place for your IVF treatment as well as a beautiful holiday destination, right in the heart of Europe.
