In Vitro Fertilization


Today, 15%-20% of couples worldwide face fertility problems. Dealing with this ever-exacerbating problem is facilitated by the methods of medically assisted reproduction. This field of medicine has yielded revolutionary achievements in the procreation process thereby guaranteeing new possibilities and offering tremendous joy to thousands of couples.

At the moment more than 250,000 couples in Greece are sub-fertile. Meanwhile recent studies have upset long-standing beliefs by establishing that in 40% of the cases the cause of sub-fertility has to do with the woman, another 40% with the man and the remaining 20% is attributed to unexplained factors concerning the couple.

In vitro fertilisation has been applied worldwide for the last 35 years and has resulted to millions of births around the globe. The great variety of in vitro fertilisation methods enable us to treat each couple’s problem individually while quality upgrades means we can achieve better gestation percentages than before. Success percentages have exceeded 40% while 15 years ago they ranged between 10-15%. This means that today, one in every two women attempting in vitro fertilisation becomes pregnant.

Reliable in vitro fertilisation centers in Greece have been getting these results for a few years now thereby rendering our country a popular destination for sub-fertile couples around the globe.

Ova Donation


The ovaries of some women do not produce eggs, for various reasons. The causes of ovarian failure may be the removal of ovaries during a previous operation, a congenital absence of ovaries, premature menopause, or even natural menopause.

All these women (recipients) may now have a child using the eggs of an anonymous donor, which can be fertilised with the sperm of the recipient’s partner and then transferred to the recipient. Naturally, it is necessary to administer hormones to all women with ovarian failure, in order to create an artificial cycle and the proper environment in the uterus to achieve implantation.

In the case of egg or embryo donation, the law requires that both donor and recipient remain anonymous. This practically means that the donor does not know who the recipient will be and the recipient does not know who the donor is, and the child to be born will not have any dependence on or relationship with the donor, but only with the recipient who will be its legal mother.

Preimplantation Check


To prevent pregnancies where the embryo suffers from serious genetic diseases, such as thalassemia, cystic fibrosis and others, for the last few years pre-implantation genetic diagnosis has been performed to embryos.

A cell is taken from the developing embryo and is subjected to tests. This way, diseases can be identified (genetic diseases) as early as the third day of fertlisation. The parents are thus certain that their baby will be healthy.

This method is only applied to in vitro fertilisation on the 3rd day of the embryo’s life in order to check for genetic anomalies before the embryos are transferred into the uterus.

Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis for all genetic diseases whose pathological mutation is known can be combined with CGH-array. This way, by conducting a biopsy on a very small sample of the fertilised eggs, we can gather all necessary information before transferring them into the uterus. This enables us to only implant the embryos which are free from chromosomal and genetic diseases.

CGH-array is a method examining all 23 pairs of chromosomes and is usually performed to women with repeated failed attempts at in vitro fertilisation, multiple miscarriages and at an older age. In June 2011, the first twins were born in Greece using this method, with dozens of children following.

Ova Freezing


Maintaining embryos in cryopreservation allows couples to use surplus embryos in the future. This is expected to increase pregnancy rates per single treatment cycle, as it enables the woman to make repeated embryo transfers with the least possible financial and emotional cost and medical intervention.

Thus, when many eggs are taken and fertilised, if the couple wishes, surplus embryos may be frozen. These can be kept in cryopreservation and used for embryo transfer in a future natural cycle, without the need for medication.
The human embryo is frozen successfully, either at the pronuclear stage (zygote) or after cell division, or even as a blastocyst. Human embryos can be frozen with two different freezing protocols: a) the classical slow freezing protocol
with propanediol and sucrose for embryos and glycerol for blastocysts as cryoprotectant solutions and b) the
vitrification method, widely used for freezing embryos in all stages, and for freezing oocytes with very high survival
rates. This technique is completely different from the previous one,as its key principle is using cryoprotectant solutions
at very high concentrations and keeping embryos in them for a few seconds to 3 minutes .
Until recently, efforts to freeze oocytes with the slow protocol remained one of the biggest weaknesses of assisted
reproduction, as survival rates were much lower than those of cryopreserved-thawed embryos. However, today, the
vitrification technique has revolutionised the field of frozen human gametes and promises high survival, fertilisation
and pregnancy rates.
At our centre, ovarian tissue may also be cryopreserved if necessary used to achieve the production of eggs, fertilisation
and embryo transfer.
Embryos and oocytes are preserved in liquid nitrogen at -196°C and remain unchanged for a long time. With current
technology, 90- 95% of embryos survive thawing. The probability of success after transfer of thawed embryos is almost
the same as the that after embryo transfer of non-frozen embryos.
Internationally, studies to date indicate that foetal abnormality rates in embryos derived from thawed embryo transfer
do not differ from those of IVF, or natural conception.

About hospital

The conception and the birth of a baby is the normal evolution of a couple that wishes to have a family, from all eternity.
But what if nature denies some couples the ultimate gift of motherhood and fatherhood? Since 2004 the GENESIS Athens clinichas set as target to give back the smile to infertile couples and the hope that they will be able to hold in their hands their own baby.
With modern equipment and stuff composed by top scientists, the GENESIS Athens clinichas already managed to make deep incisions in the sensitive field of health.
By constantly upgrading and incorporating new and innovative technologies on patient’s care – infertile couples’, the GENESIS Athens clinichas gained international recognition. But also it has ensure valuable partnerships and research protocols with clinics of Europe and Australia, with the main target always be the management of infertility.
The last 3 years, the GENESIS Athens clinicS.A. provides practical training to young scientists in the e-learning program “Assisted Reproduction" of the University of Athens and the Hellenic Society of Reproductive Medicine. A highly successful program that has been requested by the University of Bucharest, too, and now educates health professionals in Romania as well.


The greatest vision of the GENESIS Athens clinicS.A. is to bring healthy and beautiful children's smiles into the world.

And this is a vision that finds fertile ground, constantly grows and transcends the borders.

The success rates of IVF to women of all ages are so good that more and more couples from around the world come to us to fulfill their biggest dream in their lives: to become parents.

In this effort, each couple is treated differently depending on their needs. In both the medical and the psychological part of their approach, they receive the care and expertise of specialists, individually.

IVF is not a magic wand that will touch every couple and will give the coveted gift of having a baby.

In GENESIS, however, this is the Aim, theAmbition and our Vision.

We want to try and make reality the dream of every infertile couple that comes to us.

And in this effort we have as our allies the Science, the latest developments in Technology and the exceptional and highly qualified human resources.
