What makes Melbourne IVF unique?
Leading expertise and personalised treatment
Many Melbourne IVF fertility specialists are trained in obstetrics and gynaecology, but now dedicate their practice solely to fertility treatment – several are trained to the highest possible level in this field, the Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (CREI) sub-specialist qualification, which is recognised by the Royal Australian College and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists.
Your fertility specialist will choose the most appropriate treatment plan to give you the best opportunity for a baby. By undergoing treatment at Melbourne IVF, additional early testing detects the embryo most likely to lead to a baby, and other embryos of high potential are frozen for further use in months of years to come; more than 40% of our births come from frozen-thawed embryos.
All your procedures are performed by your specialist, including monitoring ultrasound scans, egg collection and embryo transfers, providing familiarity and reassurance at every stage of your journey. Meet our fertility specialists.
What’s more, each specialist works with a small team of fertility nurses who can be in daily contact with you if need be, and for your convenience start their morning clinic at 7.00am.
Our team of specialists is available seven days a week and will provide your care should your specialist be on leave or at weekends. There is always someone available who knows your case.
You can have most of your tests and appointments at a clinic close to your home or work, with seven to choose from in and around Melbourne. Procedures are carried out at our own specialist day hospital, offering a high level of comfort and privacy.
