This center is the first in the country where prenatal diagnosis can be made (imaging, genetic and immunological), pre-implantation diagnosis of the embryo, in vitro fertilization, but also the diagnosis of the main mammary diseases. The complex is equipped with a genetics laboratory, an embryology laboratory, an immunology laboratory, 3D and 4D ultrasounds and an operating room.
The cost of simple in vitro fertilization is about 1,300 euros, and for in vitro fertilization with ICSI of 1,600 euros. Artificial insemination costs 150 euros and the implantation of frozen embryos reaches 400 euros.
The center offers services such as in vitro fertilization, artificial insemination, sterility diagnosis, amniocentesis and genetic testing. Also, 3D and 4D ultrasound, mammary and endovaginal ultrasound, early detection of cervical and breast cancer can be performed.
In Romania, the demand for in vitro fertilization services is very high because the number of sterile or infertile couples has increased. Infertility treatments can also be done at the state clinics within the "Panait Sarbu" Obstetrics-Gynecology hospital in Bucharest and the Bega Obstetrics-Gynecology clinical hospital in Timisoara or at the private centers Unirea and Medsana in Bucharest. Recently, a fertilization center was also opened in Craiova.
