The nOvum Fertility Clinic was created in 1994 and specializes in diagnosis and treatment of infertility as well as cryopreservation of cells and tissue.
nOvum’s medical staff is made up of doctors representing all specialities connected to reproductive medicine: gynaecologists, obstetricians, andrologists, endocrinologists, geneticists, internists as well as embryologists, cryobiologists, biologists and analysts. Our patients have also access to psychologists, and a sexologist.
We specialise in in vitro fertilization with over 1700 procedures performed every year. Our many years of experience as well as the treatment methods used in nOvum allow us to provide effective medical assistance in even the most difficult cases. We have been reporting our success rates to ESHRE (European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology) since 1999 and our statistics are available on our website in accordance with ESHRE standards (see statistics).
nOvum has its own sperm bank and a stem cell bank where we preserve frozen oocytes, ovarian and testicular tissue as well as embryos, for our patients.
We also have our own laboratories: analysis, bacteriological, andrological, IVF, cryobiological and a genetics laboratory. There is a separate section for medical procedures.
nOvum is the most often chosen partner for international clinical studies relating to reproductive medicine in Poland. It is a sign of recognition given by the medical community to the quality of the services offered at our clinic. (see more information on clinical studies currently being conducted).
