In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF)

In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is a multi-step process in which eggs (Oocytes) are extracted from the woman’s ovary (where the eggs are produced), fertilized by sperm in a laboratory and cultured into early embryos. A portion of these embryos may then be transferred into the woman’s uterus and those not transferred may be cryo-preserved (frozen) for a transfer at a later time. The fallopian tubal damage is the chief indication for anyone to consider IVF. Fortis is one of the best IVF treatment center in Bangalore. We come with a team of successful fertility doctors.

Louise Brown, the first IVF (in vitro fertilization) success, was born in 1978 from a mother whose fallopian tubes were irreparably closed.
