Fertility and IVF Unit
Galilee Medical Center's Fertility and IVF Unit opened in August 2013 to serve the residents of the Western and Upper Galilee region in northern Israel. The unit includes a dedicated team of physicians and nurses who provide professional and personal care, and has a laboratory, an operating room, and a recovery room.
The unit uses the most advanced technologies with innovative and state-of-the-art equipment to obtain maximum results. The IVF Laboratory works according to ISO quality control standards and is equipped with advanced equipment including an Embryoscope™, an incubator that allows the embryologist to monitor embryo cell divisions while the embryos are still in the incubator. The incubator has a built-in camera that can take pictures of the embryos at timed intervals
In addition to fertilization treatments, the laboratory utilizes the egg vitrification, “flash freezing” method, novel techniques of sperm selection for improving outcomes, and PGS, preimplantation genetic screening, which refers to removing one or more cells from an in vitro fertilization embryo to test for chromosomal normalcy.
The IVF team documents patient treatment plans in a centralized computerized system that enables transparency and the continual monitoring of treatment progress.
