Our continued research in developing and enhancing the ‘Assisted Reproductive Technologies’ ensures a positive future with ever growing rate of success. Australian backed, Quality Assurance Program ensures that international standards are maintained at all our centers. By heavily investing in publications and marketing, we create awareness in people to understand infertility as a medical problem and provide a mean to seek its cure.
Up till now over 8000 babies have been conceived, as a result of infertility treatment at all our centers in Pakistan. We strive hard to provide the best available infertility treatment to our beloved patients. Child is an uncut diamond and our mission is to help all those couples who are deprived of this blessing to get the baby they wish for!

 

What We Offer?

Our primary goal revolves around providing people with the best services in the region, treatment can span a variety of processes which can involve one or more from the following:

  • Infertility Investigation
  • Natural Fertility Enhancement
  • Male Infertility Management
  • Assisted Reproduction
  • Accommodation Assistance

Infertility Investigation or Fertility Testing is the process by which fertility is assessed. On the basis of this procedure it is determined if the patient is in fact infertile. This is the primary task which is performed in nearly all cases to give the doctors an incentive on the kind of medical faults or problems the patient is facing. Fertility testing for men involves semen testing and genetic testing. While a female has to be tested by other methods such as Ovulation testing, Hormone testing and techniques such as Hysterosalpingography and Laparoscopy.
Sometimes the human body can become infertile because of our changed lifestyle, which has deviated a lot since the time that humans came into existence. This kind of problem can be more naturally cured without any hardcore medical procedures, We provide the patient the most authentic and natural treatment for such cases.
Several factors can lead to male infertility. A common cause is low sperm count. Some men might have problems on their reproductive organs themselves. Some might be able to produce healthy and enough sperm cells but might face problems of releasing them for proper intercourse. The complexity of these problems has to be identified and handled accordingly for best results.
Assisted reproductive technology (ART) is the technology used to achieve pregnancy through procedures such as fertility medication, intrauterine insemination, in vitro fertilization (IVF). It is the reproductive technology used for infertility treatments. Sperms and eggs are joined outside of the human body and then planted inside a female’s womb. Such procedures are the prime of Infertility Management and are considered wonders.
Often we receive patients who have to travel long distances to our centers, many of these patients are international inhabitants and it is highly inconvenient for them to pay regular visits to us. Since the patient is undergoing treatment, it is very important for him/her to receive the best care and comfort that can be provided. For which the patient has to interact with us on daily basis.
For such cases we have made exclusive deals with guest houses in the vicinity of our centers, to offer discounted rates to our out-of-station patients.

How it all started? – The advent of Infertility Treatment

In the year 1976 a major breakthrough came in medical science when it became possible to fertilize female eggs outside the human body. The first baby born through this technique was Louise Brown on 1978 & henceforth many strides have been achieved in this particular area & by now thousands of couples have been assisted to achieve their life’s dream in the shape of a healthy baby. After the advent of in vitro fertilization, Infertility management started growing as a specialty in the medical field. The center offering IVF attained the expertise of handling all aspects of infertility treatments.
Therefore it is the best advise to couples facing dilemma of infertility to get themselves treated at ACIMC, which is fully equipped to scientifically diagnose & treat such patients.
