Clinic details: The Lister Fertility Clinic is based in London, the UK's most accessible, diverse, and populated city. Few places in the world, let alone the country can boast as many transport connections as London, or as many people from all over the world of every creed, faith, and culture. The Lister Fertility Clinic, as one of the largest fertility services in the country, provides an incredible range of treatment options in response to the many different causes of infertility. While artificial insemination is offered, the most often sought out treatments available at the clinic are IVF and ICSI. IVF (in vitro fertilisation), is the quintessential assisted reproduction technique and hence the one most often associated with fertility treatments. Single women, same sex couples, and heterosexual couples with any number of infertility issues can benefit from IVF, and with an above average success rate for women under 35, the Lister Fertility Clinic is a prime choice for this particular treatment. IVF essentially involves taking an egg and some sperm (female and male sex cells respectively, and keeping them in a specialised glass container in a dedicated laboratory where they interact and, hopefully, a sperm cell is able to fertilise its female counterpart. Once this has been achieved an embryo will begin to grow, and after a certain stage, at the Lister Clinic 5 days because of the blastocyst transfer technique used, these embryos are taken and implanted into the womb of the mother to be. Upon a successful implantation Mum is monitored and the end result the procedure aims to deliver is a healthy baby girl or boy nine months down the line. ICSI is a tweak to the IVF protocol that is extremely useful and can often result in success where standard IVF has failed. In ICSI a single sperm cell is taken and, by means of a very fine needle, inserted directly into an egg cell. Hence the name, ICSI, which means intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection (the cytoplasm being the jelly like interior of an egg cell), and its success as it effectively removes the need for a sperm cell to be robust enough to make it to an egg, penetrate it, and then fertilise it. At the Lister Fertility Clinic you can expect the best in IVF and ICSI treatment, and recent figures from the HFEA (a government supervisory organisation) prove that it is a great choice for your treatment.

Fertility treatment at this clinic: London's Lister Fertility Clinic is an extremely popular source of fertility treatments in the nation's capital. In 2009 1,436 cycles of IVF and 1,202 cycles of ICSI were performed, and as if these numbers weren't staggering enough, these treatments proved to be above the national average in terms of the number of live births resulting from treatment cycles for women under the age of 35. With such an impressive record under its belt, it is no surprise that The Lister Fertility Clinic is by far one of the biggest and most successful fertility clinics in the country, and has only gone from strength to strength from its foundation in 1988. While some clinics will be more selective of the patients they take to achieve better success rates, the Lister Fertility Clinic strives to help couples who have received prior treatment, but were unsuccessful in their endeavours thus far. Referral criteria are kept flexible to ensure that those who can most benefit from one of the most expert fertility provisions in the country. The range of treatments on offer under the directorship of Mr Hossam Abdalla is a comprehensive one, and it needs to be to meet the needs of a diverse clientele, many of whom have undergone some form of treatment elsewhere and are looking for an alternative solution. The best in medical and scientific equipment and staff are available at The Lister Fertility Clinic, and as such the facility has received ISO 9001:2000 Quality Management certification on top of its existing license from the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority. Infertility is no longer the obstacle it once was, even though it can still be a major source of stress, anxiety, and in some cases depression. Advanced technologies and the professionals trained in their use, as available at the Lister Fertility Clinic, work together to provide as many solutions to infertility as possible. Over 2,000 couples are treated in the average year at the Lister Fertility Clinic, establishing a proven track record of success that few other facilities can compete with. Despite this volume of treatments, the clinic still aims to provide a sensitive and personal approach that caters to your need as an individual.
