The Practice Manager of One Wellness Centre, Dr. Chibuki Aigbe, says the fertility outfit is poised to increase the success rate of Vitro fertilization (IVF) in the country.
Aigbe made this known at a breakfast session organized by the center with its fertility specialists and unveiling of its facility in Lagos.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that IVF is a complex series of procedures used to help fertility or prevent genetic problems and assist with the conception of a child
The manager said the center offered services to patients in gynecology and assisted reproductive technology.
She said: “When we did our feasibility study, we realized that there were less than 30 IVF centers.
“We also find out that it’s just about one that has the latest technology as at when this study was carried out so we decided to go into this and raised the bar.
“We realized that the success rate was between 30 and 60 percent.
“I can say that with the capacity we have and investment we have done, we can raise the success percentage to 60″.
Aigbe added that the establishment of the center was initiated to reduce medical tourism to Nigerians who are in need of quality fertility treatment.
“A lot of people have the habit of visiting other countries for healthcare services.
“Our specialists and embryologists are trained, certified, and experienced globally.
“So, we decided to come up with something that is of global health standard and also at a very reasonable price for patients,” she said. (NAN)
