Clinic details: Hammersmith Hospital is within a central London location and enjoys a reputation as one of the leading medical facilities in the country. Hammersmith itself is a one of west London's most important areas with many important commercial and corporate headquarters based there. Hammersmith is also an important transport hub with two busy underground stations and a bus station, as well as excellent road access. Treatments provided by the Hammersmith Hospital's IVF element cover a plethora of different aspects of infertility and its treatment. Your treatment will begin with an in initial consultation which investigates your family history and the tests that have been done so far. If further investigations are needed, you will be scheduled for the appropriate tests, after which another consultation will involve a detailed and frank discussion of what you can expect to achieve from your treatment at IVF Hammersmith. Your doctor will discuss your options, which will include the latest cutting edge technologies like ICSI (intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection), a version of IVF (in vitro fertilisation) which yields great results by injecting a sperm cell directly into an egg cell for fertilisation. Blastocyst transfers, where a slightly older embryo (at the so called blastocyst stage) is implanted into the womb, are provided and this technique has been shown to have a substantially higher success rate than traditional IVF which uses younger embryos for implantation. Artificial insemination is offered where appropriate, intrauterine insemination being the method of choice for many couples where male impotence or retrograde/premature ejaculation is the issue. Donor sperm is available for donor insemination, which makes use of another individual's voluntarily donated sperm for fertility treatments, and is a great choice where hereditary diseases are carried in male sperm. While controversial, full and partial surrogacy is provided by the clinic where couples can benefit from the procedure, and under the centre's experience what can be a complicated process is streamlined. The clinic also offers parents the opportunity to examine embryos for signs of genetic illnesses through PGD (preimplantation genetic diagnosis), a technique that can spare both parents and child a lifetime of disease. Cancer patients can have eggs, embryos, and other tissues frozen and stored for future use before undertaking treatments that can damage their fertility. All these treatments are available and supplemented by a dedicated counselling service aiming to provide you with the support you need through a difficult time, ensuring your emotional and mental wellbeing and speeding you on the road to your goal of having a child.
